Town of Farmville, VA – AMT employees Thomas Druhot, PE, CCM, DBIA and John Farrell, AICP, CEP attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Buffalo Creek Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge in the Town of Farmville, Virginia on October 18th. The completed project features a 10′ wide multi-use trail and a 90′ long bridge over Buffalo Creek that provide safe accessibility to the existing Sarah Terry and Dogwood Trails.
AMT provided civil engineering and environmental services for the project, including the design and construction of the trail and bridge, stormwater management, wetland delineations, permitting and mitigation services, and environmental due-diligence and compliance assistance. As the trail crosses over a large forested floodplain, the AMT team prepared an analysis that drove the design and placement of the new bridge into the terrain, ultimately allowing for reduced environmental impacts and construction costs.
Event attendees included Farmville Mayor David Whitus, Interim Town Manager Scott Davis, Town Council Members, and representatives from the Virginia Department of Transportation. Remarks made by speakers emphasized the importance of pedestrian safety and the benefits of added connectivity between existing recreational trails. Future development of the site envisions it uniting with the Virginia High Bridge Trail State Park.
