This multi-use trail included two keystone elements designed by Bengal Engineering. The most unique element was the 350-foot clear span stress-ribbon bridge. The foundation was comprised of a series of ground anchors. Bridge construction consisted of prefabricated panels placed on a set of 6 pre-stressed cables. This style of bridge is one of the few in the United States.
