US6 Keg Creek Bridge in Iowa

US6 Keg Creek Bridge in Iowa

Kimball
This is the recently (2011) completed US6 bridge over Keg Creek built near Council Bluffs, Iowa. This accurate model was developed by the Iowa DOT's Office of Bridges and Structures to portray this accelerated bridge construction (ABC) project in a related video animation, which can be seen at the link on this page. Much of the video was produced in SketchUp using Scenes and Active Sections which, if they uploaded correctly into the 3D Warehouse, are embedded in this model file. Just click thru the Scenes or play the animation to see how this was done. Sorry, I had to eliminate elements (including all rebar and topography) and dumb-down some of the geometry of the original in order to sneak under the Warehouse's 10Mb threshold, but this model is still very accurate and polygon-rich. There are some useful bridge components embedded in here, too, for use in other bridge models.
