Lennar Homes needed three bridges to span stormwater management canals. Two Steel Stringer bridges and one Capstone® vehicular truss model were chosen for the site.

One Steel Stringer truss and the Capstone structure span the canals on private interior streets. These bridges connect Shadow Run to the Summit Ridge development. The second Steel Stringer bridge is installed on an arterial city street that serves both of the developments with pedestrian walkways on both sides.

“We like the look of the weathering steel and the fact that it will not require too much maintenance” stated Bill Douglas, Area Manager for Lennar Communities. “Contech Engineered Solutions was very easy to work with and responsive to the problems in the field. It was a good experience”

This project also utilized Contech ArmorFlex® articulating concrete block (ACB) revetment mats in a portion of the drainage facility. Additionally, Pyramat® High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat (HPTRM) was used under the sod for stability. In areas where the turf is to be used, a continuous length of Contech 30” CMP slotted drain pipe was utilized to pick up and convey nuisance water.
