Here is the finished bridge. There are five parts:
The dock on the far side is tethered to a tree with 5/16" (8 mm) steel cable. The dock on the near side is tethered to the pier with 5/16" steel cable. The two insert pieces at the bends are tethered to the dock on the near side and the ramp on the far side, respectively, with 1/8" (3.2mm) steel cable.
The four legs in mid-stream are 2-1/2 inch 6.4 cm) galvanized iron pipe.
The bottom of the bridge is 27" (.69 m) above the stream bed. The distance between the two piers is 33-1/2 feet (10.2 m).
