    Default wood for bridge

    Would a 6" thick plank of pressure-treated lumber (standard Home Depot variety 6 x 6 x 12ft) be as strong as a 4" thick piece of solid oak? I need to replace the wood of a bridge on my driveway which currently consists of oak planks (4 x 10 x 12 ft).

    The 6x6, actual thickness 5 1/2", pressure treated pine would be stronger and it's resistant to rot and insects. Get the pressure treated pine that is rated for ground contact.
