Just out of curiosity how will the bridge abutments be constructed? Will there be piles driven? Which brings up another good historical question: Did the W,W,&F have a pile driver?

Sorry Rob, I thought you got answered. There will be wood piles driven for the bridge and approach spans. They will have batter piles on the outside, to protect the actual support piles.

I have never heard that the WW&F had a pile driver. You can assume that they had some way to drive piles, perhaps it was hired out.
