5 rail bridge rail was used on this bridge to protect both pedestrians and cars from the edge of the bridge.
This specific bridge rail system differs from a standard 5 rail system in two ways. First the bridge posts have a special bullett head top. Second the bridge does not transition into guide rail, instead it is capped on the end.
Even with the addition of more rails there still remains just one rail that is not bolted directly to the post. On all rail systems the bottom run of 6 X 6 is bolted to a heavy clip angle.
5 Rail Bridge Rail is the most complex rail system of the simple bridges. It consists of two rungs of 6 X 6 Box Beam and three runs of 5 X 3 box beam.
