The $4.5 million Liberty Bridge is both a curved and cantilevered structure, the only one of its kind in the United States, creating an aerial amphitheater for pedestrians to enjoy the spectacular views of the Reedy River Falls in Greenville, South Carolina. With 90-foot high suspension towers that lean 15 degrees away from the walking deck, the bridge's 330-foot long by 200-foot clear span appears to float above the landscape.
Both the reinforcing steel and bridge cables were hot-dip galvanized, specifically as the architect stated, "... because I want this bridge to stand for as long as possible without any maintenance to the concrete deck or corrosion of the steel reinforcement." This showcase in the Greenville area is drawing worldwide attention and is, in part, cause for the revitalization and growth of the entire city.
