The Shem Creek Park – Phase III is a pedestrian overpass and pocket park project that started on Feb. 3, 2019. The bridge will be located over Shem Creek parallel to Coleman Boulevard totaling 270’. This bridge will provide safe pedestrian travel from one side of the creek to the other and enhance public access to the creek. Though the main pedestrian bridge will be precast concrete, the walking surface will be treated wood. Over the main span of the pedestrian bridge there will be a “curvilinear” section for an observation area. This area will step out 3’ wider than the approaches to the main span. Decorative railing will be used, which won't block any observation of the waterway. There will also be a 30’ covered bridge area to provide shade on those hot summer days we have here in the Lowcountry. The Pocket Park part of the project lies between Red’s Icehouse and RB’s. This area will completely redone with pavers, decking, lighting, rocking chairs and planter seating.
