Westside Park Bridge Project

Community and Development Services and Bell Engineering staff, along with local media, were on-site Wednesday, April 2, 2014, as the bridge connecting Hopkinsville’s Westside Park with the first phase of the Pennyrile Rail Trail project was fitted in place across the Little River. As part of renovations to Westside Park, Bell Engineering worked with the City to design a bridge to connect the park to the new Rail Trail project on the opposite side of the Little River. In order to clear the 100 year flood plain of the river, a 130-foot clear span was selected. Concrete abutments drilled into rock were hidden by segmented block retaining walls. The bridge is 130-foot by 10-foot wide concrete decked, weathered steel.
