Delta Creek Fiberglass Pedestrian Bridge

Delta Creek Neighborhood Park officially opened on June 2, 2018, connecting the Grove Park and Ravenwood neighborhoods in Charlotte, North Carolina. In addition to a playground, fitness equipment and a shelter, trails would wind within the 11-acre wooded park. An M•E•2 fiberglass pedestrian bridge was commissioned to cross the creek running through the park.

M•E•2 Pedestrian Bridges

Challenge

Mecklenburg County Parks and Recreation needed a partner for a pedestrian bridge in a new neighborhood park. The department recognized the benefits FRP provides, including long life, corrosion resistance and low conductivity and knew Bedford would provide a high-quality product and value from a partnership on a previously completed pedestrian bridge project.

Solution

Bedford designed and supplied an 8-foot-wide by 40-foot-long fiberglass pedestrian bridge. It can handle 100 psf for pedestrian traffic and 20 psf of wind pressure. The olive-green trail bridge with southern yellow pine decking is functional and a beautiful addition to the park. Completed in 2017, the pedestrian bridge was assembled on site. Due to the longevity of FRP and the integrity of the design, neighbors will enjoy the virtually maintenance-free trail bridge for decades to come.
