2009 - Stever Road
The Stever Road Bridge has a 130' opening with 6' deep steel girders and was built with grant help through the Innovative Bridge Research and Deployment Program. The base of the GRS rests on rock and the abutments are ~ 25' high. These abutments let us shorten the span by ~40' and prevented the need for piers in the river.
