Black Creek Construction having already built multiple timber bridges for the resort and golf course was given the opportunity to bid, and won the project. Through scheduling, designing, and communication with the developers, state department of transportation, and other vendors, B.C.C. was able to construct this 16ft wide x 1,250ft long 5-ton rated timber bridge.
The bridge itself has three entrances/exists, crosses over the protected trout stream three separate times, consists of a “T” – intersection, and crosses over North Carolina state highway 107. The 70ft span crossing over NC-107 is done so with the use of (6) I-beams and has a clearance of 18ft above the asphalt below. The bridge has even been given a nickname, “The Gateway to Cashiers”.
