Neat bridge that you have to cross at least once. The plated concept is continued through the main mast, where two vertical flat plates supported by diagonal stiffeners create an innovative open Vierendeel type structure.
The struts are inclined in plan and elevation to create a lightweight space truss to enhance the torsional stiffness of the deck supported by the central stay plane. An oversized vehicle recently broke through the bridge partially and retrieving it caused significant safety and bridge stability concerns. Old Jail Museum Complex. Pictured above is the accident that closed the bridge, click to enlarge. New York Hill Restaurant. And innovative designers sometimes create unusual solutions to their challenges.
