Hendrick's Auto Vehicular Timber Bridge, Charleston, SC | York Bridge Concepts

Hendrick Auto Project Overview

The Hendrick Auto Dealership of Charleston, SC approached YBC with a need to connect their expansive inventory by connecting two facility lots divided by a storm water canal. There were two primary focuses for Vannoy Construction, first they wanted a full-service design build approach and second, they wanted the bridge to function effortlessly with the lot activity. The result of this partnership is a Decero™ designed free span bridge anchored with seamless asphalt approaches tying into a flawless vehicular deck with runners. The design features an urban palette of two-toned greens and earthy tans, capped with custom gloss black post caps and a fine wire mesh. Much like the premium vehicles on the lot, this York Bridge is an exquisite example of style and more importantly performance.

“YBC worked well with us. The ability to have a turnkey bridge option was a plus and the final look and function was exactly what we needed.”
