Trail Bridge Catalog

By James Scott Groenier

Balancing esthetics and function when selecting a trail bridge can enhance visitors' outdoor experiences while keeping them safe. In 2000, Merv Eriksson (now T&D program manager in WO Engineering) came up with the idea of compiling trail bridge information in a Web-based catalog for land managers and engineers. This update of the catalog includes new information on planning, siting, designing, constructing, inspecting, and maintaining trail bridges. Scott Groenier provided the new catalog content, and Damien Hoffman improved the Web site design. The catalog makes it a little easier to select a trail bridge that can be built in harmony with the natural environment.
