Earlier this month, our structural assessment team was out inspecting the Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge. This Nashville icon connects pedestrians and cyclists from the suburbs into the heart of the city.

Maintaining this bridge is one way the City of Nashville gains its reputation as a livable city. Originally built for vehicular traffic, the bridge was rehabilitated and reopened in 2003 to pedestrians only as part of the Metro Nashville Greenway System. With its striking graphic streetscape and breathtaking views of downtown Nashville, it’s a must-see for tourists and locals alike.

The Consor team has been managing the bridge inspection program for almost 15 years. A National Historic Landmark built in 1909, the bridge has difficult access points that make it a challenge to inspect. From climbing the steel trusses to diving in the Cumberland River to reach the underwater piers, Consor was able to provide the full range of inspection services in-house!
