I like the green. I am building a deck and the code requires treated material for wood exposed to the elements. 
Where did you order the product?
Great bridge!

Thanks guys.

@Sixacresand - ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I didn't get a permit but I'm sure there is probably some agency out there that would argue I needed their permission.  It is less than the 144 SF required for permits by the building codes in our area so that was good enough for me.  There's been a ford in the creek at this location since the stone walls that run through the property were built so at least several hundred years and the bridge certainly has much less impact than driving tractors through the creek.  Since the piers were poured at the house and positioned after curing, there was no disturbance of the creek bed during construction.

@Stephen1 - I purchased the copper naphthenate from Poles, Inc..  1-gallon of 8% concentrate will make 5-gallons of solution when mixed with diesel or a little less when mixed with kerosene.  Be warned that the diesel variation smells pretty bad for a month or so.  If this was going to be used near a home, I'd use kerosene instead.  They have a water-soluble solution also as well as selling Bora-Care and Timbor.   Note that this is not "pressure-treatment" however so it will depend on the inspector or specific language if they will permit this.

Great bridge!
If you are having to be inspected, the code requirement is typically for treated to a specified retention in an audited facility, store bought treated. In some locations they will also state that naturally decay resistant species can be used, and it wouldn't hurt to surface apply a treating solution to that.

Thanks Don P, I just talked with the planeing mill, next store is a treating plant and my wood will go there to be dipped. That should keep the inspector happy.
