277 Pedestrian Bridge(in progress)
The I-277 Rail Trail pedestrian bridge design team is being led by Charlotte-based Depeña Studio, in close collaboration with Schlaich Bergermann Partner (SBP) a globally renowned structural engineering firm which has worked on pedestrian bridges around the world and projects such as New York’s One World Trade Center. The team has conceived of the two design directions which are based on adaptations of existing structural typologies via feedback from the project’s constituent team members (including an aesthetic committee, the City of Charlotte, NCDOT, and local stakeholders). The design consultants are being managed by the engineering firm Thomas and Hutton. Other partners involved in the bridge project include Integra Architecture, Sustain Charlotte and CMW Design Strategies.
