With immediate need for a pedestrian bridge over a wetlands area, Howell-Kiser Development Corporation of Boise, Idaho chose a Continental truss bridge as the solution. The 143’ long by 8’ wide weathered steel structure was designed, fabricated and delivered from start to finish in two and a half months.

Concerned about the environment, the developers did not want to disturb Pine Slough wetlands. They asked JUB Engineering, Inc. to design a structure that would start before and end after the sensitive wetlands area.

The natural surroundings of Howell-Kiser’s “Rivers End” residential development include ponds and scenic walkways. Jim Kiser, of Howell-Kiser Development Corporation commented, “We consider the structure a signature bridge. It’s a focal point for the development. It naturally draws residents to it and the beauty of Pine Slough”

The bridge was delivered to the site and installed in one day.
