The CON/SPAN® Bridge System was the only solution for spanning this wetlands area without disturbing the protected environment at Berrington Flex Place located within Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. The delineated area is overseen by the North Carolina Department of Environment & Natural Resources.

A silt fence shown in the photo above protected the area during the bridge installation. The 7,000-acre park is the largest research park in the United States, and is home to over 140 organizations. RTP has around 45,000 full-time employees entering the park each day.

Recognized internationally as a center for cutting-edge research and development, the park is owned and developed by the private, not-for-profit Research Triangle Foundation. The park gets its name from the triangle formed by the three universities: Duke University at Durham, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
