May 16, 2014 marked the grand opening of the Dunnellon Trail Bridge. Leesburg Concrete Company, Incorporated (LCCI) was a part of this significant recreational project. "Our part was the design completion and manufacture of precast concrete elements and associated connections for the precast columns and ornamental structures of the pedestrian/bicycle bridge", said Shawn Thomas, V.P. at LCCI. "This trail is a new addition to the Florida Greenway Trails System. The finish is ground and polished concrete bases and caps and stained faux stone. We are thrilled to have a part in this project and to add this to our portfolio of custom products."
The 280 ft. long bridge spans the Withlacoochee River, part of a 2.4 mile paved spur which is now part of the larger 46 mile Withlacoochee State Trail, currently crossing Pasco, Citrus and Hernando counties. The new addition is a key component of the Heart of Florida Loop portion of the Cross Florida Greenway Trail. This path provides observation of the pristine oak, pine and cypress woods which run along the Withlacoochee and Rainbow Rivers. The new trail and bridge brings the state to within two miles of the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway.
