Unique Bridges



American Tobacco Trail – Durham, North Carolina

This 270-foot-long pedestrian bridge over Interstate 40, which was finished within its $11 million budget, opened in early 2014. The bridge is the second bicycle/pedestrian bridge in the United States with an arch-support, stress-ribbon design. Described as a “work of steel art” by North Carolina’s Triangle Business Journal, its completion means the American Tobacco Trail now extends from N.C. Highway 54 at Fayetteville Road to the Chatham County line and beyond. It also fills a link in the East Coast Greenway, which runs from Florida to Maine.
