Japan's Bridges: Utility Bridge in Natori, Miyagi Prefecture
June 2011 (38.163 Degrees, 140.889 Degrees) Utility Bridge in Natori
A utility bridge crossing the same small river as yesterday's viaduct. I would call this structure a variation of the Warren truss, but with a single bottom chord element. In fact, the bottom chord is doing double duty as a pipeline and as the tension member for the truss.
