Re: Pedestrian Bridge Bearing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A little curiousity, but I don't think that amount of camber gets you to ADA if the bridge is required to meet that (odd that it wouldn't be for a DOT project).  Personal opinion here, but that's alot.  I keep my pedestrian bridges to 1/2% of span length, but that's my preference based on how I like things to look.

>The bridge has a camber of about 36" at midspan.
