Installation:

June 29, 2000

A new stadium, auditorium and parking lot were added at Hudsonville High School to handle a growing student population. In order to have easy access to the school from the new parking lot, there was a need to cross Buttermilk Creek, which flowed through the school grounds. Premarc helped GMB Architects & Engineers design this aesthetically pleasing, yet very functional pedestrian bridge.

The brick façade required the precast headwall to be set 4 inches back from the face of the units and also required the use of dovetail anchors. A special notch was cut into the top ends of the outside units to accept a 4 inch thick limestone keyway stone. This 32 ft x 12 ft CON/SPAN® sat on top of a 5 ft 10 inch pedestal wall. The 20 ft high wingwalls were cast-in-place concrete with the same brick facade.
