Cannan Valley I-Beam Stringer Bridges

Project Overview

Arete’ Structures designed, supplied and delivered 5 FRP composite I-Beam Stringer Bridges for the Tri-State Company trail builders in Huntington West Virginia.  Trail builders from Tri-State were looking for a short span low curb bridge design that would be easy to install on the trails of the Canaan Valley State Park.  They found just that with this new Arete’ design.
