Abstract/Artist Statement

The University of the Pacific desires to create a more direct pedestrian route between the main campus to the south of the Calaveras River and the Pharmacy College that is located on the north side of the Calaveras River. Hence, the objective of this project is to design a new pedestrian/bicycle bridge across the Calaveras River that will connect these two portions of the campus. The design concept faced two major challenges. First, the United State Army Corps of Engineers has restrictions regarding penetrations in the levees that exist along the side of the Calaveras River as well placement of structural foundations within the base of the river. Second, an existing private parking lot and neighboring Brookside Drive create traffic flow patter issues at the northern terminus of the bridge. To address these challenges, NSS proposes a 625-foot long clear-span, cable-stayed bridge that will extend from the lawn area in front of the Pharmacy College to the levee on the south side of the Calaveras River without significant penetrations in the levee or placement of structural columns within the defined limits of the river. The project consists of a 40-percent design level deliverable, including civil layout, structural modeling, and foundation design.
