GRAND RIVER RIVERFRONT PARK BRIDGE
Opened summer 2019, this 553-foot timber truss bridge is the longest in the US and provides a key connection to the community and nearby trails. With a $3 million project value, LRE was instrumental in securing $2.5 million from MEDC. As the prime consultant, we led feasibility studies, permitting, design, bidding and construction.

LRE developed a holistic, sustainable solution to upgrade failing infrastructure, construct a stable channel geometry, reduce the sediment load, limit debris and improve water quality. Culverts were sized to span the bankfull width and provide a natural channel bottom for fish passage. Natural channel design was incorporated into the Allegan County portion of the project to develop a stable dimension, pattern and profile.

In 2015, LRE developed a master plan for a 30-acre expansion of the Grand River Riverfront Park on the north side of the Grand River.
