4. Ballard Bridge Options and Evaluation Process
Ballard Bridge Options
This graphic represents the technical options being considered by the planning study. It does not represent a design or proposed alternatives.
This graphic represents the evaluation process our technical team used to investigate rehabilitation and replacement options, analyze the feasibility of components, and develop feasible alternatives.
We broke each of the three options into Northern and Southern components to be able to focus on the multimodal connection priorities at both ends of the bridge. We then analyzed these components based on traffic mobility, structural efficiency, geometry, constructability, and cost. The remaining feasible components we then recombined to create complete alternatives for comparison.
