Brookhaven, GA, July 12, 2016 – by Trey Benton – Work has begun in earnest to replace the Nature Trail bridge in Brookhaven’s Murphey Candler Park. In May, Brookhaven Councilmembers awarded a $241,421.31 contract to Whitesburg, GA based Integrated Construction and Nobility, Inc., to replace the bridge that was damaged by a fallen tree last year. The installation includes a pre-fabricated steel pedestrian bridge, granite wing walls and concrete trailways.
Cranes lifted the damaged bridge from its footings on Tuesday and will be trucked away. The new bridge will be installed in much the same manner whereas it will be lifted in to place one the footings have been reconstructed.
The City says they are hopeful the replacement bridge and the trail will be reopened in the first week of August.
