I need to build a residential bridge that can cross a small creek, however, the dry creek bed of the small creek is about 45 feet long so the bridge must span about 50 feet. The preferred design is a covered wooden bridge. Any information (i.e. required permits, deck design, overall design, location of reference materials, etc) you can provide to help me build this is much appreciated.

The USDA Forest Service sponsors the "National Wood in Transportation Program." The program's web site is: http://www.fs.fed.us/na/wit/ It includes information on covered bridges as well as standard drawings (designs) of wooden bridges (many are not covered). You can get a CD of their publications from the site.
