Design for a pedestrian bridge over Sims Bayou at Buxley Street in Harris County Precinct 2 to replace the existing bridge and bid-ready construction contract documents to implement the bridge design. These services supported the Sims Bayou Federal Project, accommodating bayou widening by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The bridge also serves neighborhood children for access to Grissom Elementary. An alternative analysis with three superstructure types for the bridge design was required as part of the Preliminary Engineering Report. The bridge design included improvements to the trail approaches, realignment of the trail, grading and paving of the approaches and the drainage design. This project included bid- and construction-phase services.
