Heckscher State Park Pedestrian Bridges

LKB is currently preparing design plans for the construction of seven bridges, including four (4) highway bridges, three (3) pedestrian bridges over channels leading into the interior of this 1500 acre park. The 20 foot to 40 foot wide channels will replace the existing flow restricting culvert pipes and will increase the flow of the water from the surrounding Great South Bay to the interior ponds and wetlands. The pedestrian bridges will be designed to handle 12 foot wide walking paths as well as maintenance vehicles and the roadway bridges will be designed for normal highway traffic.
