Attaching Bridge Timbers to I-Beams

Screws and washers attachment

I was wondering about how or if the bridge planks were attached to the I-beams and while browsing through another set of photos Roy has posted to SmugMug I found the answer in this photo. You have to zoom in a bit but you can see the screws and washers holding the planks down to the I-beams.

Click the photo to see it on our SmugMug site and while you are there you can check out the rest of the photos in this second gallery on the bridge building project.

    That bridge surely won’t be going anywhere…..even if built without the screws & washers. Great job guys!
