New Bridge for Longview Washington Completed


Construction of a new bridge crossing historic Lake Sacajawea Park on Washington Way in Longview Washington has been completed. Lake Sacajawea Park, built in 1924, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. The existing bridge seen in the photo above, built in 1934 as a temporary structure, was listed in the Register as ‘non-contributing’.

GreenWorks, working with the City of Longview and OBEC Consulting Engineers, assisted in developing conceptual design for bridge elements such as the bridge form and character, material, railing design, finishes and lighting fixtures. The team developed bridge design that would fit and complement the historic context of the park. The constructed bridge photo provided shows how successfully the design and construction of the bridge accomplished the design vision.

Other project design team members included Kittleson and Associates, Inc., Artifacts Consulting, Inc., Gibbs & Olson, Inc., Ecological Land Services, Inc., Geotechnical Resources, Inc.
