Leading Timber Bridge Builder, Nature Bridges, Adds Vehicular and Pedestrian Bridges in Nocatee’s Greenway Trail System
Timber bridge builder designs and constructs vehicular and pedestrian bridges for master developer, The PARC Group, in the Jacksonville, Florida area.
Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) May 18, 2009 – Nature Bridges (naturebridges.com), a leading timber bridge builder that specializes in construction of vehicular timber bridges, pedestrian bridges and golf cart bridges, along with numerous types of timber structures and site amenities, announced today it has competed the construction of Nocatee Town Center’s first light vehicular timber bridge in its Nocatee Greenway Trail System.
The Nocatee Greenway Trail System is over 5,000 acres of connecting parks, protected wildlife corridors, and wetland preserves located in the Town of Nocatee in the Jacksonville, Florida area. The bridges and boardwalk in the Nocatee preserve will allow for the connection of the trails to all the neighborhood villages and Town Center. Hiking trails and boardwalks dispersed throughout the preserve allow its residents to experience nature in an up close and personal way.
Nature Bridges’ completion of the vehicular timber bridge is the first of several they are constructing. The recently completed Nature Bridge is a 5 ton, 16’ x 200 linear foot light vehicular bridge and is located near the Nocatee trail head that leads to Nocatee’s Community and Water Park. The bridge will be used for pedestrian traffic, including biking, rollerblading and rides around the preserve in an electric golf cart. The goal of the Nocatee community is to have available resources such as stores, entertainment, park and other types of shopping within walking distance. This will allow its residents to become more familiar with their neighbors and storeowners while enjoying the amenities the community has to offer.
“We are very fortunate to have been afforded the opportunity to work with award-winning master developer, The PARC Group, on this project,” said JD James, president of Nature Bridges. “As a company that strives to have as little impact on the environment as possible, Nature Bridges constantly researches the market for “green” building products to incorporate into our designs. Collaborating with The PARC Group on this project has been an honor.” The PARC Group, one of the leading developers in the industry, received an Excel Award for “The Best Green Community.” Additionally, the PARC Group is the first developer that is incorporating TimberSIL into their design and construction of this community.
