Box truss design great choice for pedestrian bridge.AIL’s Big R Bridge recently provided a 146 m (480') span pedestrian bridge to allow safe passage over a busy highway for the Stevens Creek Trail in Mountain View, California. This elegant box truss design was supplied in four spans, and completely spanned Moffett Blvd and an adjacent access ramp. The full trail length, from San Francisco Bay at Shoreline Park to Sleeper Avenue, is 7.7 km (4.8 mi).

The Stevens Creek Trail route travels through four cities and many neighborhoods, business centers, and school grounds. Over 40,000 people live within walking distance of the Trail. The 30,000 who work near the creek can also benefit from access to the Trail for lunch breaks, alternate transportation, and opportunities to relax in natural environments.
