Installation:

Fall 2013

The Clark County 215 Trail follows the beltway along Las Vegas’ western border, offering a picturesque view of the mountains that flank the city. In order to cross over the busy Far Hills Avenue road and continue along the 150 miles of trails that are entwined within the surrounding community, a pedestrian overpass was necessary.

The City of Las Vegas needed a pedestrian truss solution. A Continental® pedestrian thrust arch bridge by Contech Engineered Solutions was used for the I-215 Beltway Trail - designed per AASHTO LRFD. The custom design of the truss bridge provided an aesthetic solution that fit within the native terrain while playing an integral part of an entire section of the Summerline and Sourthern Nevada recreational trail system.

City spokesman, Jace Radke said, “the 215-Far Hills bridge project allows for persons walking or biking the trail to continue without having to fight heavy traffic.” And Review Journal columnist, Herb Jaffe, wrote, “Realistically, it would be almost impossible to continue the trail without the bridge that sits above Far Hills Avenue.”
