Columbia Pedestrian Bridge
Columbia, SC United States | 2005
Lebanon Valley College pedestrian bridge was deteriorating and needed improvements for access for all. The bridge is an important walkway through Lebanon Valley College which connects north and south campus over Norfolk Southern railroad tracks. The original bridge only had a set of stairs for a means of access which needed to be updated. The project consisted of demolishing the old bridge and construction of the new bridge.
The footbridge connects the north and south sides of campus and allows students, faculty, staff, and community members to safely cross above the railroad tracks that separate sections of LVC. Reconstruction of the pedestrian bridge is part of the Campus Master Plan: to better create a walking campus and connect the north and south sides.
The heavily traveled pedestrian bridge needed to be safe for students, faculty, and staff to travel. The college wanted a corrosion resistant coating to protect it from the cold and corrosive chemicals and add aesthetic modern feel to the campus. Hot-Dip galvanizing gave the college a solution for long term durability and protection of the bridge which will help use the money in future projects around the campus.
