Fox Bridge

Fox Bridge
This is a very short span bridge 12 ft x 16 ft made entirely of Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Most short span bridges providing access to buildings in rural areas must be designed for the worst case possible loading, which is usually a fire truck tender or a loaded cement truck. I supported the concrete abutments on pin piles installed back from the creek embankment so as not to disturb the edges of the embankment.
