The Spring Creek Bridge is a continuous, cast-in-place, reinforced concrete "T" Beam structure comprised of a 60' parabolic arc-shaped mainspan with an overall deck width of 30'. The roadway accommodates 2 lanes of travel and two 3'-6" sidewalks, The railing consists of painted steel picket fence-type balusters spanning between concrete posts.
