Crawley Creek Pedestrian Bridge Repairs

The existing Crawley Creek Pedestrian bridge consists of glulam girders, which after a detailed inspection were determined to be unable to sustain a live loading in their current condition of delamination, and the bridge was subsequently closed to the public.  The condition of the girders is at a level where the elements may be failing under dead load alone.  The bridge will undergo extensive horizontal shear panel restoration in an in-situ repair.   In order to gain access to the bridge for repairs, vegetation clearing, grubbing and earthworks will be required to provide access and laydown areas at both ends of the bridge.
