Tennyson Street Bridge at Lakewood Gulch

Tennyson Street Bridge at Lakewood Gulch
City: Denver
Year: 2006
Project Description:

Kiowa Engineering prepared designs for Lakewood Gulch improvements between 10th Avenue and Tennyson Street in southwest Denver.  The project included new 50-foot span bridges at 10th Avenue, Perry Street and Tennyson Streets.  The project involved installation of channel bank protection, drainageway improvements, utility relocation, trail construction, landscaping, permitting, and construction management services.

Lakewood Gulch is an urban stream draining much of Lakewood.  Lakewood Gulch is subject to severe flooding resulting in 100-year peak flows of 8,000 cfs.  The design provided benefits to the community by improving flood carrying capacity, creating a recreational trail and also opened up the gulch for both safety and aesthetics.  Bates Engineering provided structural analysis and design.
