When a vehicular bridge was needed to span a creek at the entrance to The Cascades community, Centex contacted Contech Engineered Solutions. Centex Homes chose a Contech Capstone ® painted bridge for the main entryway into the scenic development because of itsaesthetic appeal and the ease of installation. The truss height of the Capstone style varies to allow a low-abutment back wall for improved hydraulic efficiency. This modified bow truss design also allows a constant rail height for an unobstructed view over the top chord. The graceful arc of its top chord is pleasing to the eye and fits the wooded surroundings of The Cascades. “The bridge offers both aesthetic appeal and structural efficiency” said Michael Twiner, President of Planners and Engineers Collaborative. “The design incorporated hydraulic considerations as well as the comfort and enjoyment of residents who would be traveling over the structure on a daily basis”
