This Paper will cover the design and construction of the Moody Pedestrian Bridge in Austin, Texas, US. The recently completed bridge, in 2016, is a one of a kind inversed Fink Truss Pedestrian Bridge which connects two existing buildings as part of the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas. The bridge is characterized by a series of slender steel towers that vary in height and scale creating an elegant statement along one of the major avenues surrounding the university campus. This type of bridge is the first of its kind built in the United States and the only worldwide with a single tower support as the main loading member.
