In this paper the conceptual design of tied-arch bridges is examined. A proposal for a particular kind of bowstring bridges, with an upper deck and a stress ribbon footbridge placed between the arch footings is discussed. The double structure allows to avoid horizontal forces into foundations when functional requirements lead to differentiate pedestrian and road traffic. After a general discussion about classical tied-arches, the main parameters involved in the design of the proposed solution are discussed and a case-study is presented.
