|August 2014 (38.50096 Degrees, -122.99556 Degrees) Guerneville Bridge|
The Guerneville Bridge is composed of concrete T-beam approach spans on pile extensions and three Parker truss main spans on pier walls. As we've discussed before, a Parker truss is a Pratt truss with a rounded upper chord and with more segments than on a Camelback truss. If you look closely at the above photo you can see the trusses are composed of 10 panels with 10 top chord segments. The trusses include 'X' bracing across the middle panels, some laced truss members, and also cross bracing at the end of each panel with 'X' bracing. The bridge is 980 ft long with 180 ft long truss spans.
