|March 2013 (38.49477 Degrees, -121.08421 Degrees) Cosumnes River Bridge|
As I've often mentioned, truss bridges are seldom built nowadays, but this is a nice contemporary truss bridge and it looks especially nice in wood. The bridge was designed by Western Wood Structures and engineered by Quincy Engineering. Western Wood specializes in big, Glulam structures and Quincy Engineering is made up almost entirely of former Caltrans bridge engineers.
We'll take a closer look at this interesting bridge tomorrow.
