Brookhaven, GA, July 3, 2016 – by Trey Benton – A project to replace Briarwood Park’s pedestrian bridge has been moving along, work primarily focusing on building a base for the new bridge footings, forming the footings themselves and support framework. Any time now the prefabricated bridge should arrive at Briarwood. Once the support base is complete, the bridge itself will be hoisted in to position by cranes.
Back in May, Councilmembers awarded Cline Service Corporation a $195,000 contract to replace the pedestrian bridge. Cline was the lowest bidder out of three respondents to a City Bid Invitation.
According to the plan created by the City’s Parks and Recreation consultant GreenbergFarrow, the work will consist of removal of the existing wooden bridge and stairs and the installation of:
- Pre-fabricated fiberglass pedestrian bridge
- Stone steps
Parks and Rec. Director Brian Borden said the Briarwood Park bridge is expected to be installed by early August.
Here’s a few photos of the progress.
