FIRST BRIDGE OF ITS KIND FOR STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT

The Pigeon Creek Bridge in Dent County, Missouri, proves that timber bridges are well suited for long spans as well as shorter ones. This post-tensioned modular T-beam bridge is 222 feet long and 36 feet wide with a 7-inch thick asphalt wearing surface. Pigeon Creek is the first stress laminated wood bridge built for the Missouri Highway and Transportation Department, whose Division of Bridges designed the structure. Located on Route 119 one mile north of Montauk State Park, the bridge is a low water crossing designed to help avoid the frequent flooding that has plagued this area of Pigeon Creek in the past. The bridge has four 55-foot spans with eight T-beam modules per span.
