Location: Missoula, Montana
Project: Higgins Avenue Cantilever Sidewalk
Product: Cantilever Sidewalk
Overview: This 55-year-old connector bridge for downtown Missoula experiences heavy vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic. During bridge rehabilitation, a 14-foot wide sidewalk was added to create a friendly, shared-use path. The 448-foot long sidewalk has an integral cross-slope, curbs and drainage scuppers to control water runoff. Railings are attached to the curbs. A highly durable, aluminum oxide polymer overlay provides a non-slip walking surface that can withstand steel plows clearing the Montana snow.
