    Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay Builds Bridge

    We erected a bridge up in Petaluma for a private party. 30-ft fiberglass, kit-type. One of our guys is a concrete contractor and did some beautiful abutments. It's nowhere near as pretty as the Demo bridge but it was a nice project for us and we got a sweet donation.

    Not only did we get a chance to learn how to do this--it will be quicker next time-- but I got a chance to tease out my time-lapse technique. Go here to see the time-lapse video which includes a map showing the bridge location, the 7-mile private trail, and a bit of video:

    Is that fibreglass board as a surface or is the fibreglass somewhere else in the construction (Question mark failure) Also keen to hear of any experience you have with fire exposure and longevity. Cheers

    The only things not fiberglass we're he nuts, bolts, washers, and the wood treads.

    I'm guessing that it will burn much more toxically than a wood structure but the color of the flame will be reply cool!
