Mercedes-Benz Stadium Pedestrian Bridge at Northside Drive

‹ Portfolio

Designed to improve inter-connectivity between the Westside neighborhoods, downtown Atlanta, and MARTA, this bridge safely provides pedestrian access over Northside Drive while improving traffic flow, especially around events like Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United games.

CPL led the project, which was designed and constructed under a fast-paced design-build method. Working closely with Georgia Bridge & Concrete and the City of Atlanta, our team developed strategies to balance the initial concept (prepared by Callison / RTKL) with new technical and budgetary considerations.

The bridge was designed in accordance with AASHTO LRFD and Georgia Standard Specifications, and was completed in time to be utilized for the 2018 NCAA SEC Championship football game as well as Super Bowl LIII on Feb 3, 2019
