Econtainer Bridge Made of Recycled Shipping Containers

Econtainer Bridge Made of Recycled Shipping Containers

The shipping containers used to build the bridge will be joined two-abreast and end-to-end with very little horizontal reinforcement needed. The primary structure of the bridge will be constructed by integrating a new steel truss with the containers. There will also be two cantilevering observation platforms, which will offer visitors the chance to take in the sights. Since the bridge will be built modularly and out of shipping containers, it will be easy to maintain and repair. This construction method also allows for using the containers’ natural properties to frame specific views. There will also be display panels running the length of the bridge that will keep visitors up to date with site-specific information and planned new projects.
