Kukui’ula Pedestrian Bridge

This steel truss pedestrian bridge is 10’ wide x 108’ long and is located in Koloa on the South Shore of Kauai. The bridge was first fabricated from self weathering steel, and then coated with a urethane enamel series paint. This combination provides longevity despite its proximity to the ocean’s highly corrosive salty air. The bridge included provisions for a concrete deck, and includes IPE, a Brazilian Hardwood, for long lasting aesthetics. The bridge was built as one standing structure, then divided into six modular pieces. This enabled it to be shipped in a Matson cargo container from California to Hawaii.

244′ Weathering Steel Bridge, South Carolina – Excel’s Tied Arch Design

This recent installation showcases our original “Tied Arch” bridge design. Our tied arch design is not only beautiful, it is tremendously strong. The arch’s geometric shape provides the strength allowing the bridge to reach its incredible span of 244 feet with a 10 foot deck width. The bridge is fabricated from weathering steel with a pressure treated wood deck providing its natural and timeless look. The installation took place in Greenwood, SC just adjacent to the beautiful hunting club, “The Territories.” Although the installation was delayed 4 hours, the structure was still successfully hoisted into place that day. We “excel” in providing our customers with affordable solutions to not only meet their specs but also a design to fit the environment. If you would like more information on this type of bridge for your project, feel free to give us a call (1-800-548-0054) and one of our bridge specialists will be happy to assist.
