Private Vehicular Bridge

Project name:  Private Vehicular Bridge

Location:  Saint Helena, CA

Owner:  Private Owner

Size:  78’x 24’  w/ Heavy vehicular load rating

Points of interest:  A private owner in northern CA was seeking a solution for primary vehicular access to their property over a creek in a fairly remote location.   They chose a “Beam” span bridge as it presented more of a “low profile” appearance without tall railing to obstruct any views of the surrounding area.   Another benefit to the “Beam” span style structure with wider spans (such as this two lane bridge), is that it can be set in place in “side by side” sections that reach all the way across the stream but weigh less than setting the entire bridge at one time.   This saves in installation costs because smaller equipment can be used.  This bridge was fabricated from weathering steel, with galvanized form decking to accept a reinforced concrete deck (by others).   This provides a crossing that will have minimal maintenance requirements, yet allow the owner to benefit from the longevity only steel has to offer.
