Stiver Engineering provided construction engineering services for the land bridge and prairie project at Memorial Park in Houston, Texas. The city closed Memorial Drive, a major traffic thoroughfare, in both directions to accommodate workers as they installed support beams for three new Ravine Bridges which will link a new section of the Seymour Lieberman Trail. Stiver Engineering designed the traffic control plan for Memorial Drive closure and detour. Our team also performed the crane bearing analysis for the 900 ton crane.
When the bridges are complete, this section will move the trail away from Memorial Drive and direct park visitors over a series of bridges through some of the most scenic and shaded portions of the three-mile trail.
