Prototype structural veneer lumber bridge to be fabricated as a multi-ply construction from veneer lumber and GRIP metal. The bridge is to be built as an experimental structure on private property and is to hold car and pedestrian traffic for the structural tests. The unique eye shape geometry allows for optimum structural force flow and the lower curved element as well as the flat extensions are both to be anchored into the ground with helical piers. The overall length is set at 18 meters with a clear span of 12 meters. The guardrails are fabricated in the same structural veneer lumber process and are held with stainless steel support cables.
