Standard Truss Bridges

Image_Integration_Portal_ViewIn an effort to provide innovative solutions to its customers, Canam-Bridges now offers a durable standard truss bridge that meets market demand for infrastructures.

Available in lengths ranging from 240 to 360 ft. (73 to 100 m) and featuring a nominal lifespan of 75 years, these standardized bridges are predesigned so that fabrication can begin as soon as we receive an order, saving several weeks from a traditional bridge acquisition schedule.

Quick and Easy Construction

Due to its fully bolted components and light frame, this type of bridge is simple to erect. The heaviest component weighs 5 tons (4,500 kg). Its erection requires no heavy equipment and is designed to be erected by either the launching or conventional method.

The bridge design complies with AASHTO and CAN/CSA-S6 specifications and comes with all bridge components, including the bridge deck with an integrated wearing surface, guardrails, structural bearings and an expansion joint.
