2 Scenario C-It has been decided that a two mile long bridge must be constructed to connect two areas along a coast. Officials believe this will promote tourism because it will connect two areas that are currently separated by a 30 minute drive. This bridge will span a wetland where the tides come in and out. Typically at a low tide much of the area is dry; however, a narrow channel remains navigable by small vessels except at extremely low tides. The average tidal range is around five feet. The development should also include a small community boat ramp, dock, and public facilities.
3 The 2 Mile Long BridgeThe measurement of the length of the bridge is close to – 2.25 miles long (Driving length)Materials- Steel, Concrete, Water, Nuts&Bolts, Rebar.
6 Differences in Bridge Designs We overall chose our previous slide's design, but we had differences in the overall design. Some of us wanted to use a “draw bridge” for boats going underneath the bridge so there would be an unlimited height in what size boats could go underneath. That would overall slow down traffic because its a one lane bridge plus the “draw bridge” would make it even slower causing back ups.
