Location: Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Whatcom County, WA, USA

Owner: United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service

The requirements of this project were for a visually appealing maintenance free bridge. Rapid-Span supplied a 50′ long weathering steel girder pedestrian bridge with precast concrete deck panels. The precast concrete deck is crowned allowing for drainage and this also provides a safe non-slip surface even in wet conditions. With precast concrete decking there is very little wear from heavy pedestrian traffic as compared with wood decking, which extends the longevity of the decking as well as being virtually maintenance free.
