Fleming and Associates, PA assisted the City of Fayetteville in the development of the Cape Fear River Trail by providing the design of cast-in-place concrete bridge abutments, elevated boardwalks, steel-H pile and wood pile design.  One unique challenge during this project was designing the covered boardwalk and bridge that passed through existing Norfolk Southern railroad trestle support structure.  The trail extends for approximately 4 miles along the Cape Fear River.  Phase II of the project which includes 8 bridges is currently under design.
