Solar Farms Light Vehicular Timber Bridge in Liberty, SC


Solar Farms Project Overview

Solar Farms is a multi-location network including hundreds of acres of high tech clean energy production for South Carolina. YBC was approached with a need to connect educational facilities and a local school over a small creek that severed the two properties for pedestrian and light weight maintenance vehicles to move between the areas. The Decero™ Design Team put an aesthetic spin on an otherwise utilitarian bridge with a combination of a rustic color palette and a sleek stainless-steel wire rope. The length of the glue-laminated beams nearly skims the surface of the creek flow while the airy handrails soar above the deck. The YBC field crew was able to utilize concrete abutments built into the access path for a seamless and expeditious construction schedule. The Solar Farms bridge now provides access to hundreds of people on an educational journey to brighten the future.
