Cable-Stayed

With their very dramatic and notable designs, Cable-Stayed bridges are perfect choices to reach spans of up to 400' and make lasting impressions – all at the same time. Big R’s custom rail treatments and architectural accent lighting will ensure your bridge is “postcard-ready”.

The Tunable Bridge™

The Tunable Bridge™ combines the physics of a tied arch with any standard steel truss system or girder superstructure and features an innovative adjustable “tuning” system to balance the live and dead loads between the arches and trusses. The truss is installed before the arches, making it ideal for spanning high-traffic corridors or difficult terrain.
