|Subject:||CONTECH Newsletter: Long Hollow Bridge|
|Description:||Hendersonville, TN ¡V Long Hollow Baptist Church has experienced tremendous growth in the past ten years and was undergoing a campus expansion. With 4,000 people attending Sunday services and only one entrance to the property, traffic congestion was a problem.|
Ultimately, consulting engineers Raven Engineering and BEAC Inc. selected a triple-span Steadfast vehicular truss bridge for its ability to span the area, while providing cost efficiency and aesthetic appeal. Two long sections cross the flood plain while the longer section spans Drakes Creek. The weathering steel bridge features a 30-foot wide cast-in-place concrete deck that accommodates three lanes of traffic.
