The Carolina Vehicular Bridge Project Overview


The Carolina Bridge traverses a wetland crossing for a private home development connecting residents in their daily journey to and from the bustling downtown Ft. Bragg. The DeceroTM Design focuses on merging with the nature of the crossing using a simple and refined horizontal rail detail with alternating thicknesses contrasted with diagonals cloaked in an earthy color scheme and capped with peaked custom caps for protection. The design features a skewed approach to accommodate the unique wetlands which required the skilled accuracy of our professional field team who completed the build flawlessly while overcoming persistent inclement weather conditions. This 32 foot wide by 48 foot long multimodal bridge allows for two full lanes of opposing traffic and pedestrians to cross safely without impacting the wetlands natural processes.
