Project Description

Allegheny Riverfront Park Riverbank Analysis & Design, Pennsylvania

Inter-Fluve conducted analysis of site hydrology and hydraulics for design of the $11M riverfront park along the Allegheny River.

This analysis was used to guide design of civil infrastructure, and to establish the design criteria for bioengineered river bank revetments. Photo: Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc.

Our design and analysis was integrated with a team composed of international civil engineering groups and the nationally renowned landscape architecture firm Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates. The bioengineered terrace was designed to withstand inundation at 335,000 cfs. Today, the Riverfront Park is a popular urban destination for running, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing. Photo: Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc.
