Ave Maria University Project Overview

York Bridge Concepts™ has unveiled its recent Decero™ Designed York Timber Pedestrian Bridge for Ave Maria University, located 17 miles east of Naples, Florida. A stunning architectural landmark, the University’s unique 182’ long pile-supported York Timber Bridge has an 85 PSF loading capacity with elegant 42” timber pedestrian splinter-free hand rails. The staff at Ave Maria have introduced this friendly, accessible structure to their students — a combination of warm, earthy tones which includes the unique metal pickets that complement the surrounding campus and environment.
