Pinkerton Park Pedestrian Bridge

Pinkerton Park Pedestrian Bridge

PROJECT SUMMARY

The bridge was shipped to Franklin in five sections and was assembled on site.  Fabricated from self-weathering steel tubing with a pressure-treated wood deck, the superstructure has minimal maintenance requirements.  The three concrete piers and both abutments were constructed using irregular stone-shaped forms, providing visual compatibility with the river banks.  The original construction budget was $450,000; the final construction cost was $447,350.  An Award of Excellence was presented to the City of Franklin by Rebuild Tennessee Coalition for this project.
