I'm building a model of the Lick Creek bridge between Boody and St. Paul. I
understand from the NWHS Clinch Valley District book that it's a 3 section
plate girder so I need 2 piers. Being unable to locate a photo, I'm having
to guess at the shape of the piers. I guess the goods is that lacking any
photographic evidence nobody is likely to argue with my choice either. J
So. I'm looking for an educated guess of what the piers probably look like.
Are the ends rounded, pointed or squared? Do they taper from bottom to top?
Are all 4 sides tapered or only 2? Should there be a visible footing at the
bottom and what would it's shape be?
