Hangingstone River Pedestrian Bridge
This 42-meter-long Alaskan Yellow Cedar pedestrian bridge has received multiple awards. Timber was identified during the design phase, both as a cost-effective option, and an appropriate fit with the natural environment of the river, park, and walking trails.
With the Glulam members on a shallow curve, this created a modern low profile that nestles directly back into the landscape. Timber was chosen as a building material for both its fit with the natural surroundings as well as being cost-effective. Multiple openings were added to both sides of the girders to break up the face and allow visitors to look out at the river.
