Single lift for new footbridge project

From Bridge Design and Engineering
A new footbridge which was installed by specialist lifting contractor Barnhart Crane & Rigging Company was opened to the public on 9 April.
The contractor installed the US$800,000 pedestrian bridge over South Chickamauga Creek near Chattanooga, Tennessee in the USA in November last year. The 58m-long bridge was transported approximately 1.5km via barge from the manufacturer to the installation site where Barnhart used two 210-ton class cranes to lift the span and to set it in place.
The new bridge links the South Chickamauga Creek Greenway with the Tennessee Riverwalk and is part of a project to improve bicycle and pedestrian access to Chattanooga-area parks and greenways.
