Bridge piggybacks on logging truck to remote Oregon site

September 16, 2014

This forestry stream crossing was surrounded by steep hills and sharp turns, so our bridge sections were transferred onto a shorter logging truck with higher clearances, for the last few miles of their journey.

Bridge arrives at noon, installs in four hours

Everything went extremely well with the installation. The contractor used the plans and drawings to prepare the site for the installation and had everything ready. They were really impressed with the quality and how well the bridge went together in about four hours that afternoon. The first vehicle drove across before nine the next morning.

Bridge modules moved to logging truck.       Bearing pads readied on bridge sills.            First bridge section lowered into place.

Our customer, Steven Ziegler, with Mason, Bruce & Girard Inc., was quite pleased:

“I was very impressed with the whole experience of working with Big R Bridge. Everyone I talked to or worked with was very helpful, professional and knew their business and product. The bridge arrived early, everything we needed was included and installation went flawlessly. Our road builder was very impressed by the design, ease of installation and completeness of the structure and all accompanying parts. The bridge went in quickly and looks great. We crossed it with heavy equipment as soon as it was installed and should have log trucks rolling over it soon. I don't have enough good things to say about the bridge and the purchase experience.”

Fast and easy, our Prefabricated Bridges are ideal for permanent or temporary applications, and come in a variety of widths and spans to handle heavy vehicles. Our bridges ship and install quickly in remote sites, with no need for specialized bridge construction companies.
