The Thorpe Road bridge crossing the Rio de Flag is a vital Flagstaff infrastructure component. The 2012 improvement project reduced flood hazard by replacing existing culverts and also tripling the flow capacity of the river. The new bridge has a beautiful, classic design with attractive arches and wide-span wing walls.
When completed, it was accented with a mosaic mural by a local artist along with native landscaping including wildflowers, bunch grasses and aromatic shrubs. It’s a must see stop along the Karen Cooper FUTS trail walking north from Wheeler Park. It sits just past Frances Short pond.
Arizona Surveying was proud to have served on the construction team that successfully built the bridge. We were responsible for calculating and staking all utility relocations; rough and fine grading; concrete flatwork including adjacent sidewalks and the bridge structure itself.
