Christina and John Markey Memorial Bridge

Revere, Massachusetts, USA, 2013

The Revere Beach Bridge is a cable-stayed pedestrian bridge, intended to be an iconic public space as part of the Wonderland Transit-Oriented Development. It connects the Wonderland Station to the beach over Ocean Avenue. The concept and design intent was developed by Rosales and Partners with HNTB to 30% design. schlaich bergermann partner, partnered with AECOM and Suffolk Construction, won this competitively tendered fast-track Design-Build project.
The bridge consists of two canted masts in a V configuration with 6 front stays and 6 back stays for each mast. The masts stretch to 67 ft above sea-level, while the main bridge spans 107 ft. The deck is composed of two longitudinal main girders which are tapered along their length to maximize the bridge's slender profile. The 12 ft wide bridge deck is composed of transverse beams and a composite concrete slab on metal deck.
