​Workshop Information​

Modern Timber Bridge Design and Construction

Fall 2020
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Amherst Junction, Wis.

Modern timber bridges are a viable replacement for aging bridge infrastructure. Currently, Wisconsin has over 500 timber bridges already in operation. Not only do timber bridges support roadways for vehicles, but they can also be utilized in recreational areas for pedestrian traffic and off-road vehicles. Additionally, timber bridges offer a feasible alternative to steel and concrete structures. 

In this workshop participants will learn:

  • New construction for timber bridges

  • How to use Wisconsin wood species in construction

  • Timber bridge design

  • Timber bridge inspection

  • Timber bridge rehabilitation

  • Applicable codes

A tentative workshop agenda will be available soon.

Target Audience

Structural engineers, engineering technicians, landscape architects, bridge program managers, local government officials, parks and recreation program managers, and anyone interested in learning about timber bridges.
