|July 2013 (38.53280 Degrees, -121.75553 Degrees) Putah Creek Pedestrian Bridges|
In the top photo the deck is built directly on top of the Glulam beams and so the pedestrian has to climb up and down the arch. On the bridge shown below they have built a separate horizontal deck supported by spandrel columns above the arch. This is a nicer but more expensive option since it is really two bridges; the bridge in the top photo supporting a timber girder bridge on columns.
