FLAT CREEK
Peachtree City, GA

Project Description: 

Vehicular Golf Cart Bridge & Nature Trail.

Peachtree City is a golf-cart friendly community. The city abounds with miles of golf cart paths that allow users to get almost anywhere in a golf cart. Backwoods Bridges built 13-foot wide timber bridge approaches to each side of a 60' free-span concrete bridge for the City. The concrete bridge that crosses Flat Creek had been in place for a few years with no access to it. The timber bridges fit in nicely with the natural scenery and enable access to parts of the city that were previously difficult to get to by golf cart. The first hurdle encountered was the difficulties of getting pile refusal due to the soil conditions. The problem was solved by augering and using a combination of excavator mounted vibratory and drop hammers to get the proper pile embedment to meet the bridge loading requirements.


Backwoods Bridges Responsibility:

480 linear feet of 13-foot wide boardwalk with handrail and curbing. Backwoods Bridges acted as the general contractor for this project.


SHIPYARD ROAD                                                                                                   Freeport, FL

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Vehicular Bridge with Guardrail & Boardwalk with Handrail.

28' x 35' Timber Bridge Deck with Guardrail and Wing Walls and 100 LF Timber Guardrail with 450 LF of 8’ Wide Top-Down Boardwalk with Handrail.

The Shipyard Road project was a much-needed improvement to enable access to a point where Four-mile Creek and LaFayette Creek merged. The two creeks then lead to LaGrange Bayou and then head out into the Choctawhatchee Bay. The location was a port during the Civil War era. The area is now dominated by the Freeport Shipbuilding Company and Murphy Oil. The old gravel road was replaced with a new asphalt-paved road and sidewalk improvements to access an existing boat ramp, dock and fishing area.
