Construction Begins on Okefenokee’s Famed Chesser Island Boardwalk

When the three-quarter mile long boardwalk on Okefenokee’s Chesser Island was devoured by the Honey Prairie Fire on June 13, 2011, the National Wildlife Refuge lost one of its most treasured assets.  Nearly two years later, work is underway to replace this walkway into the swamp.  Hydra Engineering and Construction, LLC, of Boardwalk in 1969Crawfordville, Florida, designed the new boardwalk and began mobilizing on site February 26.  Materials began arriving a month ago, and the first few yards of the planking are now in place. The anticipated completion date of the project is early August. 

The wooden boardwalk will be rebuilt using Trex, a wood polymer product.  Trex uses recycled plastic grocery bags and stretch film, as well as waste wood from making furniture and shipping pallets
