I am very passionate about preserving and maintaining historic structures and bridges, which most people tend to take for granted.

Courtney Clark joined the Weidlinger Transportation practice in 2004. She is experienced in the design and rehabilitation of vehicular and pedestrian bridges, and specializes in the rehabilitation of suspension bridges.

Diversified Expertise
Courtney works with a team of engineering professionals to maintain the structural health of bridges, primarily in the New York City area. Her experience encompasses a variety of structures, including steel grid, orthotropic, suspension, light rail viaduct, and concrete prestressed bridges. She has contributed to the maintenance and rehabilitation of such landmarked crossings as the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and such prestigious spans as the Verrazano Narrows and Bronx-Whitestone Bridges. She is leading the redecking design for New York’s Throgs Neck Bridge, and assisted in the concept and design for replacement of the Queensboro Bridge’s orthotropic deck. She has also contributed to a large number of pedestrian bridges, among them the stunning 3D double-helix design for a footbridge in Xinjin, China, and the West Thames pedestrian bridge over State Route 9A in Lower Manhattan.

Industry Contributions
Courtney is a graduate of the American Council of Engineering Companies Leadership Institute and serves on the organization’s scholarships committee. She is a substitute teacher at The Cooper Union and a frequent presenter for Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation events.

Outside of Work
Courtney is a voracious reader and enjoys works in the science fiction and fantasy genres. She reads so much, in fact, that before switching to e-books, she had to donate paperbacks to the library every month to keep her apartment from “filling up.” She also likes to stay physically active. She met her husband at the gym, and they still regularly work out together. Courtney loves yoga, and practices it two to three times per week.
