With your explanation of the construction, sound's like there should not be a problem. As I spliced two bridges of 20 inch's in length and finished up with a length of 33 inch's. The brass channel's were, I felt necessary to strengthen the butt joint.

The deck width was increased from 2&1/2 inch's to 3&1/2 inch's. Although not perfect, it comes close to the prototype, being the Norquinco River bridge on the Esquel line in Argentina.
