Longitudinal Deck Bridges

For the shorter spans, 20-30 ft., deck panels of vertically laminated members are usually 4 ft. in width and of a predetermined depth appropriate for the span.

Many longitudinal decks have been built of solid-sawn timbers with butt joints in successive runs, timbers of high moisture content and mechanically fastened rather than of glued laminations. Use full length vertically-oriented glued laminations and kiln dried lumber.
