The Sangerville Bridge Print E-mail

demo_sangerville1.jpgThe Sangerville Bridge is a glulam girder bridge with a glulam deck. Both the girders and the deck utilize Maine-grown red maple. The deck consists of #2 and better red maple 2x6 graded using NELMA softwood standards. The 2400F girder layup was developed by the University of Maine using E-rated red maple laminations. Red maple is an abundant under-utilized wood species in New England. A design report is available from AEWC.
