This is the only concrete curved chord through girder bridge I know of in the state of Georgia. In this part of the country in 1924, steel through and pony truss and concrete deck arch were the most common. It's a rare find indeed.
.....or basically......what Nathan just said!
I like how the arched sections are placed between the flat sections with the open railing. A very unique bridge indeed!
Wow, this really is a fantastic structure! Nice big floorbeams too. It is unusual because there are simple t-beam spans which separate the curved girders from each other and the abutments. I sure hope this bridge is left standing next to the replacement bridge.
I've updated the design to curved chord through girder. I'm off work Thursday, so even though it's a pretty good ride from where I live, I believe I'm going to go ahead and make the trip to get pictures for it. Thanks for the info on the design.
I looked at these photos, and then looked it up in the NBI, and both yield the same conclusion: this bridge is not an arch bridge, but is something far more rare, a curved chord through girder! This is an extremely significant bridge!
