About the Graham Swamp Trail and Pedestrian Bridge
The Graham Swamp Trail and Pedestrian Bridge project consists of many unique elements. Its remarkable features include a paved trail and elevated boardwalks, seamlessly connecting the Lehigh Trail to the future Bulow Trail and the proposed Bulow Creek Headwaters Park. The standout feature of the pedestrian bridge is its unique a-frame safety enclosure, not only enhancing the bridge’s aesthetic appeal but also ensuring the safety of all its visitors. As an added convenience to travelers, the project also includes a sidewalk along the southern side of SR 100, connecting it to the existing sidewalk along Old Kings Road.
ETM was honored to have been contracted by Flagler County to provide Construction, Engineering and Inspection (CEI) services during the construction phase of this project. Our firm worked alongside the Engineer or Record Kisinger Campo & Associates and Contractor Masci General Contractors.
This Graham Swamp Trail and Pedestrian Bridge’s double win is a testament to its groundbreaking design, engineering ingenuity, and commitment to improving the region’s transportation infrastructure. The project stands as a shining example of what collaborative vision and expertise can achieve, and we were honored to have been a part of this exciting journey.
