Thanks, I've found their site and many references to Con-span. I'll contact them after the holidays. I'm still interested in information on the "Elliptical galvanized steel culvert sections" suggested by B. Pohemus in another post. I haven't been able to find any reference to such used as a bridge. The point below about impacting the waterway is important as I do have to get a permit from the Dept. of Fish & Game. The less disturbance to creek flow the better. From this perspective, perhaps this type of bridge is less desirable than pre-fabricated steel.

I don't have their website address, but you should be able to find them with a web search. I am sure that there are other companies making similar products. The structural aspects of your crossing is only one issue. I am sure that some government agency, perhaps the local water management agency, has jurisdiction over the waterway and you will need their approval. You may need to provide some hydraulic studies showing that your crossing will not have any adverse effects upstream and downstream (often referred to as a "no-rise" certification). Also, if wetlands are affected, you may need a permit from the Army Corp of Engineers. I can't tell from your message whether or not you are an engineer. If not, I strongly recommend that you consult with one while you are still in the planning stage. As is typical with almost all projects, this one is not as simple as one would first think.
