The bridge is a series of spans, 17 in total, with a ﬁxed shear key connection at pier 8, near the middle of the bridge. Due to the extreme length of the structure, the STUs at piers 1 and 16 were required to have a total movement in excess of 750 mm, with an ultimate limit state (ULS) capacity of 11 500 kN. 5 shows one of the STUs. , 2004).

4. 7). The bridge is one of the ﬁrst tied-arch bridges approved by the Federal Highway Administration, and is the longest tied-arch bridge built in Idaho. In a tied-arch bridge the outward directed horizontal forces of the arch are borne by the bridge deck rather than the ground or the bridge foundations. The bridge deck ties the ends of the arch together and is under tension, much like the string of a bow. The elimination of horizontal forces at the ends allows a tied-arch bridge to be constructed with less robust foundations.
