This pedestrian bridge project was the fifth constructed by American Bridge in recent years under design/build contracting in Florida. The bridge is part of the trail network in Seminole County, located at the intersection of State Route 426 and Red Bug Lake Road. It has a total length of 735” and a mainspan of 170'. The approach structures are cast-in-place concrete, and the mainspan superstructure is composed of pre-cast/pre-stress concrete beams with a cast-in-place concrete deck. The mainspan contains architectural enhancements including brick skinned columns, custom aluminum rails and precast cladding. Work also included retaining walls and milling and resurfacing of Red Bug Lake Road in the vicinity of the bridge and construction of 1,200' of paved pedestrian/bicycle trail.
