CON/SPAN Provides Backdrop for Waterfront Memorial
As a way to honor those who died on September 11, 2001, the Town of Hempstead built a waterfront memorial at Town Park Point Lookout. A CON/SPAN® B-Series Bridge System with EXPRESS® Foundations was included in the design to provide a backdrop for the memorial. The structure also allows visitors to traverse the bridge to a high point where views are directed to the site of the Twin Towers, or to pass under it to access the beach.
