EGLISE BRIDGE – YELLOWSTONE CLUB
“Over the River and Through the Woods” to Yellowstone Club we go
A new 500-foot long and 39-foot wide steel bridge crosses wetlands and Muddy Creek to transport commuters and pedestrians to and from Yellowstone Club, a private residential ski and golf community open to members and guests. The deck-arch bridge is primarily bolted together with weathering steel components. DCI+BCE Engineers developed the bridge aesthetic with the owner and collaborated with the steel bridge fabricator on the connection design conceptualization.
DCI+BCE’s scope of the project also included a preliminary feasibility report offering bridge options and cost estimates; preliminary drawings and concepts; final construction documents; shop drawings; field inspections; and final observation reporting.
- 540-ton steel deck-arch bridge with two drive lanes for vehicles and a pathway for pedestrians.
- Design comprises of both conventional spread footings and micropile deep foundations for vertical and lateral load distributions.
- Deck-arch design gives the appearance of an old railroad trestle bridge which is common in Big Sky’s mountain regions.
