Steel Structure Trivia: National Park Bridge

With a 1,700 ft span, this is the longest steel arch bridge in the western hemisphere, and the third-highest bridge in the U.S., with a deck height of 876 ft. In 2013, the National Park Service listed it in the National Register of Historic Places as a significant historic resource. (Photo: JaGa) 

In honor of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary, our August Steel Structure Trivia question is:

What is the name of this bridge and where is it located?


This is the New River Gorge Bridge, located on U.S. Route 19, just north of Fayetteville, W.Va. Congratulations to our winners! They are: Jeff Rodeheaver, detailing manager, and Matt Baldwin, project manager, both with SWF Industrial, Inc., Wrightsville, Pa., and Nep Viajar, a civil/structural engineer with Fluor Corp., Houston.

You can test your steel structure knowledge right here on our MSC website on the last Friday of each month, where a new trivia question will be posted to the News section. Our next challenge will be posted on Friday, September 30 (which is national SteelDay!).
