This is a 450 foot long steel pedestrian bridge manufactured by Excel Bridge. The pedestrian bridge spans Walnut Grove Avenue to connect Edison’s corporate offices in Rosemead CA. The pedestrian bridge provides Edison employees a safer and faster way to cross the busy street that separates the two office buildings. This steel bridge is also the first pedestrian bridge erected in the city of Rosemead.
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.
This pedestrian bridge spans over a railroad along the beautiful North Portland Greenway Trail in Multnomah, Oregon. This steel truss bridge is 124’ long by 14’ wide and is manufactured out of self weathering steel. The self weathering steel blends well with the surrounding landscape, and has a long useful life while requiring very little maintenance. The bridge was built for the Multnomah County Department of Transportation, specifically for the Willamette Greenway Chimney Park.

These multi-section pedestrian bridges were built for the Irvine Company in Irvine, California. All three pedestrian bridges shown are manufactured out of self-weathing steel – which gives it a natural look – providing longevity with very little maintenance.
This beautiful bridge was fabricated by one of our West Coast production plants, is a dark colored “Fir Green,” and sizes 146′ long by 15′ wide! The bridge was built as one standing structure that was eventually split up and shipped as 4 pieces. After arrival, it was erected on site and set into place. The bridge sits adjacent Lake Merritt, a large tidal lagoon that lies just east of downtown Oakland, California.
Located near Jackson Hill Street in Houston Texas, this pedestrian bridge is 10’wide x 345’long and spans over Buffalo Bayou Park as part of the Buffalo Bayou Partnership. Jackson Hill Street is one of three locations that Excel Bridge Manufacturing Co. provided the Buffalo Bayou Partnership with a time-sensitive and cost-effective bridge solution.
This prefabricated pedestrian bridge was built for the city of Petaluma California. This particular prefabricated truss bridge was made from self weathering steel for reliability and longevity.

This bridge was built for the city of Mancos Colorado providing a passage over the creek to the library. It didn’t take long for the kids to show up!
Details: 12 x 140 feet each (4 sections total). Self weathering steel bridge for Ventura County, CA. Installation
Date: January 12, 2012.
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.

8 x 613 in Total Length of Bridge and Ramps (Largest Sections: 8 x 113 Clear Span) | Aluminum Overpass | Rancagua, Chile
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.
Project name: University Bridge Replacement
Location: Hartford, CT
Owner: University of Hartford
Size: (2) 120’ x 10’
Points of interest: The University of Hartford was seeking a solution for their student campus pedestrian traffic to cross a river that flows through the university property. We’ll let the words of the Senior Director of Facilities, at Hartford Univ. speak for themselves: “Excel was selected from four possible firms to build the replacement bridge needed. I had contact with two representatives of your company; one presented a quote with (4) possible options to consider, it was clear from his presentation that he listened to our needs and provided all the information we needed. The other representative’s calm and professional manner instilled confidence that the product would exceed expectations. The bridge was delivered as promised, and exceeded everyone’s expectations.”
Project name: Private Vehicular Bridge
Location: Saint Helena, CA
Owner: Private Owner
Size: 78’x 24’ w/ Heavy vehicular load rating
Points of interest: A private owner in northern CA was seeking a solution for primary vehicular access to their property over a creek in a fairly remote location. They chose a “Beam” span bridge as it presented more of a “low profile” appearance without tall railing to obstruct any views of the surrounding area. Another benefit to the “Beam” span style structure with wider spans (such as this two lane bridge), is that it can be set in place in “side by side” sections that reach all the way across the stream but weigh less than setting the entire bridge at one time. This saves in installation costs because smaller equipment can be used. This bridge was fabricated from weathering steel, with galvanized form decking to accept a reinforced concrete deck (by others). This provides a crossing that will have minimal maintenance requirements, yet allow the owner to benefit from the longevity only steel has to offer.
Project name: Animas River Trail
Location: Durango, CO
Owner: City of Durango
Size: 40’ x 10’ / 170’ x 10’ / 40’ x 10’
Points of interest: The City of Durango was seeking a solution for a unique, aesthetically pleasing pedestrian trail crossing to cross the beautiful Animas River in Colorado without exceeding budget. They decided to bid the project out as a “design/build” format in where the owner lists a very minimal set of requirements for the bridge except for perhaps the bridge length & width parameters, and the required bridge loading (for vehicles and pedestrians). Then in cases like this, they also indicate that they want the most cost effective solution, but aesthetics are also of great importance. Then each bidding contractor may team up with an engineer, sub-contractors, suppliers, etc.. and try to come up with the best looking and most economical solution between them. The team Excel worked with chose a lightweight prefabricated “Bow” truss style bridge option, fabricated from weathering steel, with premium tropical hardwood decking. Our team also provided the owner with an add option to include a couple attractive yet purposeful, bolt-in-place – “walk-out” platforms at the center of the longest span. As you can see from the photo(s) – the owner preferred our team’s option and also chose the “walk-out” platforms to enhance the already attractive option.
Project name: University of Central Florida Pedestrian Bridge
Location: Orlando, FL
Owner: University of Central Florida
Size: 170’ x 12’ (3) span continuous
Points of interest: The University of Central Florida was seeking a solution on the grounds of the campus for an attractive bridge to cross a man made pond. A primary goal was to make this bridge sort of a centerpiece of that area of the campus. We presented several options and they decided on a prefabricated “H-section” truss style bridge to allow students a clear view of their surroundings when crossing the bridge. They also chose painted steel, with a galvanized form pan to accept reinforced concrete decking (by others), stainless steel cable safety rails, and built-in-place custom “L.E.D” lighting in the kick (or toe) plate level, all to enhance an already attractive structure.
