Glen Burnie, MD

Tate Center Pedestrian BridgeWBCM provided structural engineering for the design of the 98-foot long by 10-foot wide reinforced concrete Tate Center pedestrian bridge at Baltimore Washington Medical Center. The Tate Cancer Center is affiliated with the University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center, one of the country’s leading hospitals in the treatment of blood, brain, breast, lung and prostate cancer. The new pedestrian bridge provides safe access to the Tate Center from the parking garage.

The pedestrian bridge is supported by three reinforced concrete piers and spread footings and was designed for a 100psf uniform live load and applicable wind and seismic loads. The north end of the bridge connected to building previously designed by WBCM. The south end of the bridge connected to an existing parking garage. The pedestrian bridge is self-supporting with an expansion joint at each end.
