Bridge aesthetics for Broadway Bridge replacement : Daytona Beach, Florida Pielstick, Brett H

By: Publication details: Transportation Research Record, 2000Description: nr 1696, s. 31-40Subject(s): Bibl.nr: VTI P8167:1696:1Location: Abstract: As the gateway to the beaches of Daytona Beach, Florida, the new Broadway Bridge will be a signature bridge for the community. Mosaic tile murals up to 3 m in height will be incorporated around the columns of the new bridge, as will mosaic panels along the sidewalk handrail. The bridge will also feature ornamental handrail and light fixtures with aesthetic lighting that will display this high-profile structure to the surrounding skyline of Daytona Beach. Additional plantings and fountains will be provided with a grand architectural entrance welcoming visitors to Daytona Beach and onto this signature bridge. The glass tile mosaic art will feature manatees, dolphins, and other nature scenes with species endemic to Florida. Special reviews and approval of the art scenes will be done by the architect of record before fabrication of the large pieces. The Broadway Bridge replacement is being constructed with twin, precast, segmental concrete bridges erected by balanced cantilever construction with an overhead gantry system. The construction includes a cast-in-place, posttensioned flat-slab section on the west end. Each bridge will have a 20-m vertical clearance over the 38-m-wide navigational channel. The bridges will be approximately 918 m in length, with spans varying from 30 to 80 m. The span length variation with structure height will add to the overall aesthetic features of this signature bridge. Graceful lines developed by the segmental design and the additional architectural features provided by the mosaic inlays, lighting, plantings, and fountain make the Broadway Bridge unique and a beautiful addition to the Daytona Beach area.
