WBA is appreciative of some recent national accolade after their contribution to one of USA Today’s “Best New Attractions in 2020”.

Chris Fanning, WBA National Accounts Manager for Bridge and Highway products worked closely with i+icon Southwest to provide custom fabricated products to a massive high-profile attraction in Florida.

The brand new attraction in Tampa Bay, St. Pete Pier, as it is called, is a 26-acre downtown waterfront pier in St. Petersburg. The attraction landed at No. 2 on USA Today’s list, right behind the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Here is what USA Today had to say about the pier:

“This new attraction on the St. Petersburg waterfront offers 26 acres on the blue waters of Tampa Bay. The new pier features art installations, a marketplace, Tampa Bay Watch Discovery Center, playground, lawn areas, a fishing deck, bars and restaurants.”

Key to the roadways and avenues throughout the pier, are custom fabricated Wabo® Sliding Plates, known as embedments, which aim to ensure safe pedestrian traffic along and across various locations on the pier.

WBA is proud and excited to have been able to contribute to such a stunning landmark.
