The Blue Heron Pedestrian Bridge is part of a nature train in Newton Massachusetts. The bridge was galvanized because of the visual appearance and quality of HDG steel. Because the bridge is along a nature trail, maintenance and/or replacement are expensive and difficult.

HDG was specified because the client desired very low maintenance and a long lasting structure, and hot-dip galvanized steel met both of these requirements. Because the structure is located in such a nature-rich environment, the client chose to paint over the entire galvanized bridge to help blend it into its surroundings. This duplex system will not only help integrate the bridge into the environment, but will also help the structure avoid corrosion up to 2.5 times longer than the sum of a galvanized or painted bridge alone.
