Blue Heron Pedestrian Bridge
Newton, MA United States | 2004
The Christina and John Markey Memorial Pedestrian Bridge is located in Revere, Massachusetts, directly on the Atlantic Ocean and in an area exposed to industrial pollutants from manufacturing operations and petrochemical storage facilities.
The bridge, designed by the same architect who designed the iconic Zakim Bridge in Boston, is part of the Revere Transit Facility and Streetscape Project which will be an important link to historic Revere Beach, America's first public beach. Given the aggressive environment, the historic significance of Revere beach, and the public awareness and use of this pedestrian bridge, it was determined the only method available to protect the structure from corrosion was hot-dip galvanizing. To enhance the aesthetics of the project, a duplex coating was specified, giving the structure an additional measure of protection.
