A Vehicular Truss Bridge from Big R turned out to be a great county road solution for both the local residents and the environment.
The site is encroached by protected trees so there were limited positions for a crane to set up. Neighbors were concerned that the replacement project would result in some tree loss. They were quite relieved on installation day when the bridge arrived in sections, was quickly assembled and crane-set with virtually no impact on the trees.
Limited impact on creek habitat as well
The clear 132' span of this Warren Truss design helped reduce any negative impact on Red Oak Creek’s natural habitat. Since its finish is naturally weathering steel, it will never have to be sandblasted or painted. Even better for the environment.
Big R Bridge offers prefabricated Vehicular Truss Bridges in spans up to 240' that are chosen by municipalities, counties, cities and departments of transportation seeking heavy duty bridges with old style classic aesthetics.
Factory designed and built benefits you
We manufacture several types of truss designs to suit many applications. They are pre-engineered and prefabricated in the controlled environments of our AISC certified facilities. This provides precise tolerances, superior welding integrity and other key benefits that location built bridges simply can’t achieve.
