Abstract/Artist Statement

In Stockton, California the Calaveras River separates the University of the Pacific campus into north and south campus. Pacific’s student enrollment has been increasing at rate of approximately two percent per year since 2001 and with this increase there exists a need for additional housing. Upon reviewing Pacific’s Master Plan for Pacific’s 2024 vision, which includes additional student housing on north campus, a second pedestrian bridge crossing the Calaveras River between the existing footbridge and Pacific Avenue has been identified as an infrastructure need. The proposed pedestrian bridge is intended to improve access between north and south campus by providing a shorter walking distance and improve student safety. The goal of this senior design project is to design a pedestrian bridge spanning approximately 380 feet with foundation design, and falsework design. Design considerations include structural, geotechnical, water resources, and environmental analysis. Final project deliverables include a structural design of the bridge, slope stability analysis, foundation design, stair and ADA access ramps with retaining wall design, and the falsework design required during construction.
