Aspen Heights Timber Vehicular Bridge - Atlanta, GA

Connecting the Aspen Heights Community Vehicular and Pedestrian Bridge Project!

The Vehicular With Attached Pedestrian Timber-Built Bridge
in Athens, GA.

At York Bridge Concepts, we take pride in crafting not just structures, but experiences that seamlessly blend functionality with aesthetic appeal. Our project in Athens, Georgia, is a testament to this commitment – the Aspen Heights Community Vehicular and Pedestrian Bridge.

Aspen Heights Spanning Solution

Spanning gracefully over a tranquil creek, this timber double-lane vehicular bridge, accompanied by an attached pedestrian section, serves as a vital link within the Aspen Heights student housing community

Creating Convenience

Designed with both convenience and safety in mind, our design team and master craftsmen have meticulously crafted a free-span design that ensures smooth passage for vehicles and pedestrians alike.

Ensured Safety

Safety is paramount, which is why our K-Style Guard Rail and curb system have been incorporated into the bridge's design, providing an added layer of security for all users. Whether you're driving across or taking a leisurely stroll, you can rest assured knowing that your well-being is our top priority.

Creating Charm With A Legacy Designed Timber Bridge

But functionality is just one aspect of our bridge – its beauty is equally captivating. Drawing inspiration from our esteemed Legacy Design Collection, the Aspen Heights Bridge exudes timeless elegance and charm.
