facility in Woodridge, IL where we focus on Made in USA and Buy America project requirements.

About the bridge

The Haymarket Pedestrian Bridge in Lincoln, NE connects the Pinnacle Bank Arena sports facility with an entertainment plaza and parking area. The 614 foot long concrete bridge stands above a four lane highway and six active railroad tracks. The construction of the bridge marked the beginning of retail and residential growth in the Haymarket District where it has become an iconic structure for the City of Lincoln.

The mesh and border cable

In order to provide secure fall protection while keeping the view uninhibited, eighteen X-TEND® panels of 1.5mm x 30mm mesh with vertical diamonds were used along the span of the 614 foot bridge. The panels vary in height from 5’11” to 12’. Panel widths range from 7’ to over 58’ runs. The mesh is framed with 10mm I-SYS® stainless steel cables with turnbuckles and eye ends to support the long spans.
