Millville by the Sea Timber Pedestrian Bridge - Millville, DE

Millville by the Sea Project Overview

Located near the sandy shores of Delaware is the Millville by the Sea Community where neighborhoods exude coastal charm. The growing community offers miles of trails, parks, amenities, and custom homes featuring distinguished architecture and luxury of indoor-outdoor living. The Decero™ Design Team focused on these ocean breeze ideals creating a free span bridge that sails over a river inlet. The classic timber picket railing is glazed with a soft blue complemented by a crisp sandcastle beige deck and dark abutments that blend into the banks. The YBC Field Team exhibited their quality craftsmanship & speed with this bridge keeping a pristine site over the waterway and at the roadside and completing the construction within 2 weeks of arrival. York Timber Protective Systems™ with custom bollard caps completed the bridge.
