High Knob Trail Bridge

Location: Wise County, Virginia

Project Description:

This contract was for the construction of a 34LF sawn stringer timber bridge with timber crib abutments. Due to the limited access of the bridge site, most of the material was flown in by helicopter for the bridge. The timber crib abutment material was hauled in by a mechanical mule and some backpacking to the site. The old bridge that was being replaced was demolished and removed from the site.

Below are some pictures of the project as it is being constructed. The pictures are thumbnails, click on them to view a larger image. Be aware that most of the images are large file sizes and need time to download.
