New Truss Connects Community to The Shops at Del City, OK

Vital to increasing customer traffic flow to the Shoppes at Del City in Oklahoma City, OK from a new housing development, this 139 ft long by 24 ft wide self weathering Viking Style bridge was installed in the fall of 2008. In addition to the two lane wide vehicular bridge, a five foot wide sidewalk with wire mesh panels was added to allow for pedestrian flow to and from the mall. Stay in place (SIP) galvanized forms were used for both the roadway and sidewalk to accommodate the final concrete roadway finish.

A utility line was incorporated into the design and attached to the underside of the sidewalk portion of the bridge.
 
Each truss was delivered in three sections and bolted together on site. The bridge was installed over a 5 day time period.
