TDOT and the Metropolitan Government of Davidson County completed the successful rehabilitation of the historic Shelby Street Bridge over the Cumberland River in Nashville. Since its opening in 2002, it has become a landmark to locals and tourists alike. The bridge was refurbished and includes an elevator, ramps, and stairways. The bridge has a center lane that is fifteen feet across to accommodate bicycles. Originally it was thought that a trolley might use the center lane, but that idea was abandoned in favor of a bicycle lane. On each side of the bicycle lane are 10-foot-wide (3.0 m) elevated boardwalk-style sidewalks. The bridge includes four scenic pedestrian overlooks that, in the metal of the railing, have artistic renderings of the history of life on the Cumberland River. The bridge is dramatically lit at night.
Wilson & Associates performed Construction Staking, Lines and Grades for the entire bridge renovation and construction of adjacent structures and roadways.
