How does the Interstate cross the River?

In Florida – it seems so easy.  Here is I-75 connecting Miami to Michigan, crossing the sensitive Braden River in Manatee County.

The bridge deck segments are 58 ft wide by 100 ft long, sitting on torsion trivet pilings 60 ft wide by 50 ft on center.  Expense for this type of river crossing is minimal, given the small beam size.

Wildlife values are excellent

Hogging the log!
