Build a new bridge? …. What do you do with the old one ?
Through our travels we have seen many bridges re-purposed to become fishing piers. Some are turned into exercise parks with individual stations for different exercises. We even saw one where regular car shows are held.
This one in Lake Lure, NC is both innovative and beautifully done. Their old bridge was fitted with planters, brick walkways, many large pots, and garden sculptures. Lots of soil was hauled in for the planters. Chairs and small tables were placed about for seating and relaxing. The entire bridge is now an incredible Garden Walk.
