2016 DCC Award Winner
Main Street Temecula Bridge, T.B. Penick & Sons, Inc.
First Place: Cast-in-place – Stamped / Over 5000 SF
When the City of Temecula, CA wanted to create a new Main Street Bridge they reached out to T.B. Penick & Sons to construct one that was both functional and would complement the old town feel. The bridge is located in Old Town Temecula where there are still real wood walkways throughout the town.
The city wanted the bridge to look like it belonged to the surrounding areas. They also wanted to create a safer walking space for pedestrians by adding 10 foot sidewalks along each side of the bridge.
Penick was awarded this project because we were able to adhere to the design intent that the city wanted, continuing the look and texture of real wood. We achieved this by utilizing various lengths of Bomanite’s Boardwalk pattern as well as Bomanite’s Ashlar Slate Bomacron.
The bridge was poured over a steel truss structure that required two large pours at 8” thick. The adjacent sidewalks required two pours at 4” think and the adjacent flatwork leading up to the bridge was poured in multiple pours. The overall bridge is 152 feet long and 47 feet wide including two 10 foot exterior sidewalks.
