Erdman Anthony provided preliminary and final design services for the
reconstruction of and capacity improvements to 3.5 miles of I-490, a major
six-lane highway that bisects Rochester, including 20 bridges in this section
from the Erie Canal to the Genesee River. As part of this project, Erdman
Anthony designed the Frederick Douglass-Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge
(Troup-Howell Bridge) as a replacement for the existing bridge. The new bridge
is 1,180 feet-long, with an arch span of 433 feet. The three-member steel arch
structure is the first of its kind in the United States. Design features
contributing to the bridge's appeal include a low profile that enhances sight
distance along I-490, rounded support beams and cable support linkages to
enhance visual interest, and a fanned array of support cables to echo the shape
of the arch.
