Re: Rails to Trails bridge progress

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
To my eye it looks like someone substituted a 2x6 for the 4x6 shone in the drawing. Unsure what you are referring to but we have not deviated from the drawing expect to orient the through bolt the correct direction, nut out board.

Did they decide to skip the lag bolt coming in from the back side? No, it was my job to install these yesterday. This screw is essential to keep the post vertical until the rails are installed.

I'm project manager so the "they" is me. The post and rail is my design, then approved and stamped by a PE to make the print permit valid. Everything about these bridges is approved by a mechanical and civil engineering firm on a "stamped" drawing, and then local building inspector signs off on them.
