Team 7 - Team Bridge




Team Bridge consists of four Civil Engineers. Our goal is to design a bridge or culvert with bituminous path that will span Whisky Creek, located just south of Burton Street across from Calvin's Burton Street entrance. This crossing must be safe, functional, and attractive. The design must allow for both foot traffic and will be ADA compliant. The project will provide some unique challenges, which we are eager to take on as a team.




Under normal flow conditions,Whisky Creek flows only five feet wide and one foot deep. The image on the left shows the valley during the April 6th, 2010 storm event, which was appromixately a 20 year storm. This flooding shows the importance of having a carefully designed crossing which is safe even during these sorts of storm events.
