What Type Of Temporary Bridge Design Do I Need?
We know that 1 bridge will not work for every application and that’s why our temporary bridge designers can work with you to determine the type of bridge that would work best for your specific application, conditions, load requirements, traffic patterns, schedules and budget. Once we figure out what type of bridge system will work best we will take care of the rest including transporting, loading, offloading, installation and the removal once your project is complete.
Why Use a Temporary Bridge VS. Detouring Traffic?
When storms and other disasters hit, creating new access can be a challenge. You have the choice of either closing the road, detouring the traffic or a temporary bridge. In most cases, a temporary bridge is actually the best alternative.
Detours and road closures are a normal part of road construction but getting a more sound solution in place that improves safety is the most important.
Construction worker safety is also a concern while detours and lane closures are in place. Motorist are used to their normal routes and not all obey traffic signs. This can create an unsafe situation where a temporary bridge could remove these risks.
