Rocky Fork State Park contracted with Bob's Trails, Trees & Gardens to supervise the construction of a 100 ft. new trail bridge to replace the old wooden bridge. The new bridge consists of a 60 ft. and 40 ft. aluminum span from a Gator Bridge which meets the Buy America requirement of the Federal Highway Administration's, Recreational Trails Program (RTP). Bob worked with the state park staff and volunteers to build the two abutments and middle pier for the bridge. They built the forms, installed the rebar, and poured the concrete. When the forms were complete they supervised the positioning of the two spans on the footings. Holes were drilled for the 16 inch anchor bolts which were then placed in position and secured with epoxy.
