Our 2019 projects are well underway, so we’re featuring current projects to share what these past months have looked like for us at Nature Bridges.
Big Creek Greenway in Alpharetta, GA
We are building two wooden boardwalks and a wooden free span bridge for the Big Creek Greenway in Alpharetta, Georgia. This project aligns with our goals of enjoying and preserving natural habitats. The greenway is an 8-mile trail along Big Creek for walking, hiking, cycling, and enjoying the great outdoors. The free-span bridge connects both boardwalks and provides accessibility to previously existing portions of Big Creek Greenway at McFarland Road.
All the curb, decking, framing, and support materials are pressure-treated Southern Yellow Pine. All hardware is hot-dipped galvanized.
Swan Woods Trial – Atlanta History Center in Atlanta, GA
We are building a boardwalk and bridge for the Swan Woods Trail on the grounds of the Atlanta History Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The boardwalk will connect the Swan House driveway to the cabin in the woods. Nature Bridges will install an ADA ramp to the bathroom facility to provide accessibility.
The framing and temporary decking are pressure treated southern yellow pine. The permanent decking will be black locust, which is a North American hardwood. All hardware is hot-dipped galvanized.
Salinas Park in Cape San Blas, FL
Our Nature Bridges team feels honored to be part of this project in an area affected by Hurricane Michael. Salinas Park is a public park and beach access point in Gulf County on the beautiful St. Joe Bay, and we are building boardwalks, observation platforms, a bike repair station, pickleball courts, and a playground with shade pavilions.
Southern Yellow Pine is being used for the pilings, caps, stringers, and handrail. All heavy-beam hardware, including bolts, Simpson straps, and clips, are stainless steel. Decking is WearDeck, reinforced polymeric lumber.
Neabsco Creek in Woodbridge, VA
We are excited to be in the final stretch of the Neabsco Creek Boardwalk (a glulam free span bridge) in Prince William County, Virginia, and look forward to the grand opening on June 1. The trail, featuring an observation tower, runs across Neabsco Creek and connects the Julie A. Metz Wetlands Preserve with the Rippon Landing Community Park.
Black locust decking and pressure-treated pine. All walkways and observation areas have stainless steel cable railing.
We are looking forward to the summer months and to taking on new projects. Are you in need of a similar boardwalk or bridge? Contact us today and we’ll help you get started. 850-997-8585
