Meadowlands Timber Vehicular Bridge Construction - Calabash, NC

Meadowlands Project Overview

Tucked away in the planned community of Meadowlands in Calabash, NC is this classic Decero™ Design timber bridge. The Design Team used a tri-tone contrasting color palette to spice up the vehicular guard rail and traditional structural elements. The bridge was completed without significant impact to the residential routine due to the fully integrated YBC design-build approach and commitment to providing a premier turn-key bridge. This 24 foot double lane vehicular bridge provides residents with a fun landmark crossing on their daily journey.
