Description

The Loblolly Nature Park is part of the Hogtown Creek Greenway Park System in Gainesville, FL, a walking, biking, and jogging trail system.  This project involved the removal and replacement of over 1300 LF of 8’ wide elevated boardwalk, including headers, joists, decking, and handrails with vinyl wire.  This section of trail snakes through a heavily wooded area that connects NW 16th Ave to NW 8th Ave.  Access to the site is very limited and preservation of the trees and other landscape remained a top priority throughout construction. This project was completed successfully in March 2016.
