Since this bridge was built for pedestrian travel only, aesthetics was a bigger factor in the design of the rail than functionality. Notice the combination of box beam and pipe with the picket fence system.
If you get a chance to travel to Poughkeepsie, NY take a walk over the Hudson River and take a look at our work. The bridge and scenery are a must see.
Not all bridges are built for motor vehicle travel. Some bridges are built for pedestrians and non-motor vehicles. This bridge is a great example of that.
This custom bridge rail still uses the standard W6 X 25 I beam style bridge posts as a motor vehicle brridge. The posts then had custom fabricated sections of rail mounted to them.
