Takoma Park, MD — The Department of Park and Planning in Montgomery County announced today that the pedestrian bridge has been re-installed at the Central Avenue entrance to Becca Lilly Playground in Takoma Park, Maryland. The previous bridge was swept away by a series of storm events that caused Long Branch Stream to rise.
When Department staff found that the usual process of bidding a contract to rebuild the bridge would take more than one year to complete, they explored the option on using existing materials and staff to replace the bridge. Based on a design by staff engineer Dilip Pandya (who also served as project manager), a crew of five skilled craftworkers from the Department’s Central Maintenance Division used materials found in stock to construct and install the foot bridge. Bob Turnbull, of the County-wide Planning Division, assisted with the installation.
