Our bridges often serve multiple needs rather than being dedicated to pedestrian or utility traffic. If your bridge needs cater to specialized traffic or pull double duty by incorporating utility lines and a safe walkway, then a multi-purpose bridge is right for you. From long single span bridges, to bridges that can carry vehicular loading, Gator’s bridge building process ensures that your structure specifically serves its intended purpose. Cyclists, horseback riders, golf cart users, and other recreation groups are often the initiators of our multi-purpose bridge projects. These groups have the passion and knowledge to specify the exact features that suit their active interest.
From golf carts and ATVs to maintenance vehicles and emergency traffic, GatorBridge can fabricate a bridge that services your pedestrian and occasional vehicle traffic. Your light vehicular bridge by Gator will have all of the benefits and features of our high performance aluminum including corrosion resistance, minimal maintenance requirements, and ease of installation.
Gator has worked closely with the Rails to Trails organization to design bridge plans to meet the requirements of this national movement. These bridges can be up to H5 load rating with asphalt or concrete decking. Cyclists, runners, emergency traffic and even equine traffic have been accommodated in the design of our aluminum bridges for Rails to Trails locations.
Due to the low maintenance requirements and the corrosion resistance of aluminum bridges, Gator is a favorite supplier of golf course bridges. Cladding and powder coating are popular options to help achieve the aesthetics of public and private golf courses. Horizontal rail with an HDPE rub rail is also a design feature that works well for golf cart bridges.
Similar to Rails to Trails, parks and recreation areas often have multi-use needs for their access structures. GatorBridge’s long life and advantageous total cost of ownership makes our first theme parks and recreation clients our repeat customers.
