Re: cable x-bracing

Mark,
 
Does the Deck project on which you are considering X-bracing offer the possibility of making the deck a horizontal cantilever from an adjacent diaphragm?  Shear connections at the contact edge, and tension/compression type connections that reach back into the diaphragm from near the edge at each side of the deck may allow the out-board edge to be unbraced.
