Subject: Timber Bridge Details

Does any of the timber related organizations have any publications that deal specifically with timber bridges?.  What I currently need is suggested details for a timber handrail (pedestrian loading only) to be constructed on a timber deck supported by steel girders.  I'd prefer not to re-invent the wheel.
