Historic Carbon Bridge Replacement, Hat Creek, CA

This Excel Pedestrian Bridge is 160’ long x 8’ wide, built for California Trout, Inc., and replaces the historic Carbon Bridge in Hat Creek, CA. The structure is a Pratt Truss design, made of self weathering steel, and equipped with an IPE Hardwood deck. The Pedestrian and Light Vehicular Bridge has a stainless steel safety cable system, is designed to carry pedestrians and a 10,000 lb. vehicle, and has a lifting weight of over 80,000 lb. Due to limited site accessibility, this Excel Bridge was delivered in 3 sections. After being offloaded, the 3 sections of bridge were moved to the site with tractors, erected with a crane, and quickly set on the abutments without delays!

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.

Gallinas Diversion Rehab

Project name: Gallinas Diversion Rehabilitation

Location: Las Vegas, New Mexico

Owner: City of Las Vegas.

Size: 52.6’x 4’ & 54’ x 4’

Points of interest: The City of Las Vegas in the state of New Mexico was seeking a solution for maintenance worker/ pedestrian access traffic to cross a diversion channel in a remote canyon with difficult access. They chose a lightweight prefabricated truss bridge option fabricated from weathering steel, with galvanized serrated steel bar grate decking, to insure they’d have a crossing that would have minimal maintenance requirements, yet provide a safe “non-slip” passage, as well as benefit from the longevity only steel has to offer. The proportionally lightweight benefits of our truss style bridges meant bringing in smaller equipment to erect the structures than other forms of construction could offer. This meant saving money not only purchasing the structures, but also installing them.
