PECIFICATIONS FOR THE DESIGN OF PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES
1
1—GENERAL1.1—SCOPE
These Guide Specifications address the design andconstruction of typical pedestrian bridges which aredesigned for, and intended to carry, primarilypedestrians, bicyclists, equestrian riders and lightmaintenance vehicles, but not designed and intended tocarry typical highway traffic. Pedestrian bridges withcable supports or atypical structural systems are notspecifically addressed.These Guide Specifications provide additionalguidance on the design and construction of pedestrianbridges in supplement to that available in the
AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (AASHTO LRFD)
.Only those issues requiring additional or differenttreatment due to the nature of pedestrian bridges andtheir loadings are addressed. In Article 3 of thisdocument, the load definitions and abbreviations aretaken from
AASHTO LRFD
. Aluminum and woodstructures are adequately covered in
AASHTO LRFD
,and as such are not specifically addressed herein.Implementation of the wind loading and fatigueloading provisions require reference to the
AASHTOStandard Specifications for Structural Supports for  Highway Signs, Luminaries and Traffic Signals(AASHTO Signs).
C1.1
This edition of the Guide Specifications wasdeveloped from the previous Allowable Stress Design(ASD) and Load Factor Design (LFD)-based, edition(
 AASHTO 1997 
). An evaluation of available foreignspecifications covering pedestrian bridges, and failureinvestigation reports as well as research results related tothe behavior and performance of pedestrian bridges wasperformed during the development of the LRFD GuideSpecifications.
1.2—PROPRIETARY SYSTEMS
Where proprietary systems are used for a pedestrianbridge crossing, the engineer responsible for the designof the system shall submit sealed calculations preparedby a licensed Professional Engineer for that system.
C1.2
It is important to clearly delineate the responsibilitiesof each party when proprietary bridge systems are used.All portions of the design must be supported by sealedcalculations, whether from the bridge manufacturer, orthe specifying engineer. The interface between theproprietary system and the project-specific substructuresand foundations needs careful attention.
1.3—COLLISION MITIGATION
 AASHTO LRFD
Article 2.3.3.2 specifies anincreased vertical clearance for pedestrian bridges 1.0ft. higher than for highway bridges, in order to mitigatethe risk from vehicle collisions with the superstructure.Should the owner desire additional mitigation, thefollowing steps may be taken:
Increasing vertical clearance in addition to thatcontained in
AASHTO LRFD
Providing structural continuity of thesuperstructure, either between spans or withthe substructure
Increasing the mass of the superstructure
C1.3
In most cases increasing vertical clearance is themost cost effective method of risk mitigation.
