Lincoln Avenue Bridge
Otak, doing business as Loris and Associates, provided bridge design for reconstruction of East Lincoln Avenue from Willow Street to Lemay Avenue in Fort Collins, Colorado. The project provides a gateway to the several prominent breweries located in this area, and the bridge is the focal point of the design. We designed an asymmetric, two-span structure that is 195 feet long and 65.5-feet-wide. The bridge used side-by-side concrete box girders to reduce structure depth for hydraulic and path clearance purposes. The plaza on the north side of the bridge created an urban parklet. We designed pergolas and benches as places to meet and relax. Brick pavers add to the sense of space and irrigated planters act as bollards to provide additional safety.
