As part of the Route 36 Bridge rehabilitation and replacement program, H&H designed two pedestrian bridges over the Shrewsbury River on the Highlands Beach end of the bridge to provide safe passage to the New Jersey shore without crossing an active roadway. The bridges are constructed of prestressed concrete beams supported by reinforced concrete hammerhead piers on spread footings.

The pedestrian bridges’ main span over the roadway is 100 feet long, consisting of two AASHTO Type V I-beams. The approach span ramps consist of 70′ spans using two adjacent box beams transversely tied. The structure is ADA-compliant using ramps with level rest areas every 35 feet. Access by way of stairs is also provided. The pedestrian bridges are an extension of the pedestrian lanes provided on the Route 36 bridge.
