Timber Bridge Design Adds Beauty and Protects the Environment in the City of Tampa

Share Article

York Bridge Concepts™ has partnered with the City of Tampa with a bridge design that enhances the Water Works Park project located on the Tampa Riverwalk with a Decero™ designed York Timber Pedestrian Bridge.

The ability to reclaim that natural spring that used to provide drinking water for the City of Tampa... is the culmination of that where we start the process by which we restore this park and really create a destination in the area. - Mayor Buckhorn

Situated in downtown Tampa, York Bridge Concepts™ has completed the bridge design and build for Water Work's wood bridge. The exclusive Decero™ design complements the aesthetics of the crossing and its surroundings, integrating seamlessly with the beautiful continuation of the Tampa Riverwalk. Located at 1710 North Highland Avenue, Water Works Park offers an wide expanse of green space for relaxing or watching boats along the adjacent river.

Along the Hillsborough River in Tampa, this hub is the first step in the development of the urban environment that surrounds the 52 foot timber structure, which spans the flow of crystal clear water bubbling from a rejuvenating fresh water spring, historically used as a source for drinking water for the City of Tampa. Through its trademarked Decero™ philosophy, YBC™ was able to integrate the City's requirements and ensure the protection of the waters. Because York Bridge™ assumes the corporate responsibility and commitment to the environment with strict adherence to green business practices both in-office and on-site, every project is executed and constructed in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.

Forty years in the making, this new destination is drawing visitors from surrounding neighborhoods. The collaboration between the City of Tampa and York Bridge Concepts™ will continue contributing to the flourishing style and development of Riverside Heights, expected to be complete in 3-6 months.
