University of Texas – BELO Center for New Media & Moody College of Communication Pedestrian Bridge – Austin, Texas
The new pedestrian bridge is a one of a kind Inverted Fink Truss bridge in Austin, Texas. We provided electrical engineering design services as the bridge has integrated aesthetic lighting into its stainless steel railings. The bridge connects two buildings as part of the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin. It crosses over West Dean Keeton Street, a busy thoroughfare that traverses the campus. The overall length of the bridge is approximately 300’ (91m) with a slender high tower of 65’ (20m) which marks the bridge crossing from a distance. The pedestrian bridge compliments the architecture of the BELO Center for New Media.
Jose I. Guerra, Inc. provided complete electrical engineering design and construction administration services.
