Covered Bridge Trails Vehicular Bridge - Lewes, DE | York Bridge Concepts

Transforming a Crossing Challenge Into a Community Centerpiece

The developers of Covered Bridge Trails faced crossing issues during the planning stage because of the extensive environmentally-sensitive wetlands intersecting the active adult residential community.York Bridge Concepts’ elevated design proposal not only solved the accessibility problem but fashioned the bridge into the focal point of community inspiring the developers to change the original name of the neighborhood to celebrate the single lane covered vehicular bridge.
