Landscape plans for Stonebridge Senior Housing called for a Continental ® truss bridge that would allow residents access to the other side of the property and an extensive system of scenic walkways.

A great deal of site work was needed to achieve the park-like setting that was envisioned. Over 90% of the undergrowth and bramble in the area was removed while saving many of the old growth trees. According to project manager, Gary Spainhour, the area was then completely reseeded and landscaped, and in a stroke of good timing, the planting was off to a strong start. The result is evident today in the lush appearance of the ground and the favorable comments of the residents who enjoy the walkway, its beautiful landscaping and picturesque gazebo.

The prefabricated steel Continental ® stringer style bridge is 26’ long and 6’ wide with a painted finish and low maintenance lpe hardwood decking. The bridge was installed in less than a day.
