As envisioned by Arup, the new 450-foot pathway will be able to utilize the existing support structures for the old bridge, which hovers over Furman Street. But the new span will be prefabricated offsite and plopped into place. While the trusses that support the bridge will be made of metal, the pathway itself will still be composed from wood, though BBPC has yet to determine the specific material.
