Pedestrian Bridges - Truss Styles

We have your Pedestrian Bridges.

Whatever your requirements, Big R has the right bridge for your particular site and application. Big R Pedestrian Bridges are available in many different styles. Choose from one of the options below or speak to one of our local bridge specialists to learn more.



Underhung Floor Beam

When clearance below the bridge is critical, this parallel chord style offers the shortest superstructure depth. An Underhung truss has its floor beams welded to the bottom of the bottom chords. It’s best suited for pedestrian bridges with spans up to 70′, but is available in spans up to 120′.


H-Section Floor Beam

For spans up to 240′, the H-Section is often selected for the most efficient superstructure. This parallel chord truss design has its floor beams welded to vertical members of the side trusses. As with all styles, the H-Section can be created with additional camber for a more graceful look.



With elegant top chords arching up from its base, the Bowstring is the perfect combination of visual appeal and design efficiency. Bowstring is available with spans up to 100′ in an Underhung configuration and up to 200′ as an H-Section.


Modified Bowstring

Available in similar spans as the Bowstring, the Modified Bowstring is a more economical choice when an arched top chord is desired. The less-pronounced arch still adds some beauty to the superstructure, while keeping the budget in check.



For grade separations and enclosed walkways, the Box style is the preferred choice as it allows easy attachment of fencing or glazing on the sides and/or top, when required. Numerous architectural screen, roofing and branding options can also be incorporated.
