Nature Bridges was contracted to build a 10’ x 400’ wooden and fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) pedestrian bridge system with a 10’ x 77’ FPR free-span bridge. This FPR free-span bridge was the first of its kind to be installed in the state of Florida and is able to withstand sustainable winds up to 140 mph. To help minimize impact on vessel navigation through Henderson Creek, Nature Bridges first assembled, then installed the fiberglass free span bridge approximately 15 feet above water level. The new pedestrian bridge system connects the second floor of the Learning Center to a planned 1.5-mile trail system to allow visitors to explore important coastal habitats and rich cultural history within the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
