Lincoln Avenue Bridge Fort Collins, Colorado

In providing a gateway to the several prominent breweries located in this area, the Lincoln Avenue bridge is the focal point of the design reconstructing East Lincoln Avenue from Willow Street to Lemay Avenue in Fort Collins, Colorado.

A Bridge Designed for Safe Passage to Downtown Businesses

The asymmetric, two-span structure is 195 feet long and 65.5-feet-wide. In reducing structure depth for hydraulic and path clearance purposes, the bridge uses side-by-side concrete box girders. The plaza on the north side of the bridge creates an urban parklet while pergolas and benches were designed as places to meet and relax. Brick pavers add to the sense of space and irrigated planters act as bollards to provide additional safety. Otak (as Loris and Associates) provided the bridge design for this improved corridor and community connection.
