Crowder’s work on this project included the installation of 113, 20-foot pre-cast concrete piles, each between 92 and 100 feet tall. These piles served as the backbone for the pile cap and surface concrete to be proud onto stay-in-place decking. Crowder formed and proud pile caps and set pre-cast beams to facilitate the construction of the new deck and ramp. The project also included the installation of conduit, piping, electrical and water distribution for the new pier section and ramp. In addition, this project included the construction of a new guardhouse and gates, as well as work fencing and lighting additions.
Crowder constructed a mile long recreational nature trail and two pedestrian bridges - including: channel improvements, snag and debris removal, training walls, slope protection, and utility, road and building relocations and landscaping to reduce flood hazards, damages, and associated negative social and economic impacts. Crowder Installed Two, steel-truss pedestrian bridges over the Roanoke River. One structure was a two-span bridge over 250 feet long and the other a single span bridge over 217 feet long. The trail consisted of over a mile of paved walking surface with landscaping including wooden and wrought iron fencing. To prevent water from backing up behind the trail embankment as well as to improve drainage, 24 inch concrete pipe and 5 foot diameter manholes, with associated headwalls, and slope ditches were installed leading water back into the Roanoke River.
