BELL served as the Construction Manager/General Contractor for the Division Street Extension. The extension bridge is multimodal, accommodating not just vehicles but also bicyclists and pedestrians that runs six blocks from 8th Avenue South to 2nd Avenue South, providing a critical link between the booming Gulch district and the South Broadway (SoBro) community. It provides easier access for downtown drivers to major transportation arteries such as Interstate 40.
The project consists of the construction of a new 4-lane roadway and bridge along the existing Division Street and Ash Street alignments from 8th Avenue South to Lafayette Street. Roadway elements include new traffic signals, street lighting, sidewalks, separated bicycle lanes, and landscaped areas. The bridge was constructed across active CSX railroad tracks.
