Arroyo Del Valle Bridge
Arroyo Del Valle Bridge.
Thanks to the efforts of the Tri-Valley Conservancy the Tri-Valley Trails are being connected!
The Arroyo del Valle Regional Trail, in Sycamore Park, will no longer lead visitors and wildlife to a dead-end trail. With the addition of the Arroyo Del Valle Bridge, the area has become part of a continuous 44-mile regional trail into Del Valle Regional Park, Ohlone Regional Wilderness, Sunol Regional Wilderness, and Mission Peak Regional Preserve. Connecting the 5 parks will allow visitors seventeen times the trails to peruse. Furthermore, this connection will enable access for people with strollers, cyclists, and those with disabilities. As for the wildlife, they benefit from the bridge too! Connecting the bridge enabled an interconnected habitat. It’s an amazing win for the entire community!
BSK’s Contribution to the Arroyo Del Valle Bridge.
BSK’s Livermore Office is proud to be part of the Tri-Valley Conservancy’s team for the construction of the Arroyo Del Valle Bridge. BSK supported the Arroyo Del Valle Bridge project with observation of helical anchor installation, earthwork compaction testing, reinforced concrete inspections for the bridge abutments, and high-strength bolting inspections. Sequentially, we know this bridge was inspected by the best in the business! Additionally, we’d like to give a big thanks to Danaige Tower, Michael Romero, David Eckhardt, KC Clark, Omar Khan, Veronica Rager, Don Steckbar and Dennis Ness for their support to the project. Check out the photos below to see the BSK crew in action!
On Friday, September 27th, the bridge assembly was completed, lifted into place, and anchored to the abutments. Many thanks to the Tri-Valley Conservancy for the invitation to watch the bridge pick and including members of our project team at the event!
