Bretton Woods Pedestrian Bridge - Bretton Woods, NH | York Bridge Concepts - Timber Bridge Builders

Bretton Woods Project Overview

Located in the secluded area of Mt. Washington, part of the White Mountain National Forest, lies York Bridge Concepts’ recent addition to the resort – a 90′ long timber pedestrian bridge. The use of timber structures, as the environmentally friendly option built from a renewable resource, is no longer a dream. Our Decero™ Design team has revolutionized old-school ‘timber bridges’ to stunning, modern pieces of enduring architecture. Spanning the Ammonoosuc River – skiers, pedestrians and snowmobile traffic cross this iconic structure – a true showcase of our approach to design.
