I have a creek that cuts my property in half and I would like to build a bridge to get a tractor to the back half. Due to various departments of making you sad I need a clear span bridge of 26'-30'. My tractor weighs 3400 lbs and one of the main uses is to get firewood I'm thinking I need the bridge to support at least 5,000 lbs. Any help anyone can provide would be great.

I still think making a bridge is a lot of hard work and cost and maintainance for something with so little use . If you have a tractor it does not mind getting its feet wet why not a combined weir/ ford ?
But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
