Nature Bridges, a top builder of boardwalks in wetlands, partners with landscape development firm to rebuild hurricane-damaged nature trail.

We are proud to have the opportunity to provide new boardwalks for the nature trails at Pensacola Naval Air Station

Nature Bridges (naturebridges.com), specialists in boardwalks in wetlands and other environmentally sensitive areas, announced today it has completed reconstruction of a series of boardwalks in the nature preserve at Pensacola Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida.

The completed project includes 6-feet, 8-feet, and 10-feet wide boardwalks in three locations at the base: Bayou Grande Nature Trail, Trout Point Nature Trail and Lake Frederic. The four-month project was completed on June 14, 2007.

The project was initiated to rebuild the boardwalks after they were destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. Designed by ValleyCrest Landscape Design in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, (valleycrest.com) and constructed by Nature Bridges, the boardwalks were built using the innovative top down construction method. With top down construction, all large equipment stays on top of the new structure during the entire building process. This method provides a long-lasting structure and helps to preserve the surrounding plant and animal habitats during and after construction.

"We are proud to have the opportunity to provide new boardwalks for the nature trails at Pensacola Naval Air Station," stated JD James, president of Nature Bridges. "Reopening the boardwalks for military personnel and their guests is an important part of the restoration of this area."
