Among the first steps that Buchanan County Engineer Brian Keierleber took in the development of the new bridge in Jesup, Iowa was to create a design using eSPAN140, the free design tool from the SSSBA. He entered information about the bridge, including span length, number of striped traffic lanes, skew angle and design speed, among other requirements.
