City of Fayette – Multi Use Recreational Bridge Over the Volga River

Bridge & Culvert – Design & Rehabilitation

This project began with a hydraulic analysis of the Volga River at a predetermined location for a new trail bridge within the City’s corporate limits.  The analysis concluded a 160’ x 10’ pre-engineered steel truss bridge, along with earthen fill at the abutments and appropriate channel widening, would satisfy Iowa DNR review criteria.

The plans included provisions for a timber bridge deck and reinforced concrete abutments supported by both timber pile and spread footings. The trail bridge plans were part of a larger recreational trail improvement project designed by TeKippe Engineering.  Construction took place in 2008.
