Design of this project started in February of 2020 and will finish in April of 2021. The structure itself is made of 9 panels varying in size, outfitted with channels to attach hanging apparatuses and sit on the piling. It is an impressive display of precast/engineering/construction thanks to the joint efforts of Design Precast & Pipe, Inc., CAYO, Covingtion Civil and Environmental, and the USACE.
