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?

Answer:

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!).
