Bridge Types

Q. What type of bridges does Excel design and fabricate?

We fabricate and manufacture the following types of bridges:

  • Pedestrian Bridges
  • Vehicular Bridges
  • Creek Crossing Bridges
  • Golf Course Bridges
  • Trail Bridges
  • Pipe Support Bridges
  • Conveyor Support Bridges
  • Overpass/ Skywalk Bridges
  • Other multi purpose bridges

(See below for examples)

Truss bridges economically span farther. Notice there are no beams under this bridge; the railings are the support.
Trusses can be dressed up in many ways to modify their appearance like the Monticito design above. At Excel, one of our company values is helping you conceive a bridge that complements your property.

Excel bridge can build many different trusses or use girders that incorporate unlimited options – from gates and lighting to timber railings and cobble stone decking, from fire truck capacity to ornate steel railings. We always try to build to your specification.

We are rarely involved when pre-stressed or poured concrete is the part that carries the loads, or with clear spans over 220′ and trusses over 12′ tall. Excel can often provide short, two lane road bridges.

Camber: The arch of a truss or girder bridge is not structural, and generally you may order it flat or with any amount of arch you wish (within reason). For easy accessibility, and for public use, 1% camber is usually specified. ADA (American Disability Act) does have restrictions on the amount of camber that can be used, in case ADA where must be adhered to (For extensive discussion on this topic, visit For Engineers > Common Pitfalls)
