GatorBridge In Action

GatorBridge believes that you should have access to sample plans, specifications, and drawings, as well as an immediate budget number, at the very beginning of your bridge project. We are the only bridge company that offers this service to engineers and project managers. You will find whitepapers, installation videos, case studies, and technical resources below.

During your project, GatorBridge’s team of experts will help you through design considerations and logistics from conception to completion. Before fabrication of your aluminum GatorBridge, our team of engineers will also provide you with a full package of drawings and calculations of your bridge design that is stamped by a Professional Engineer. This package includes finite element analysis, reaction analysis, installation details, loading conditions, as well as plan, elevation, and section views.

Case Studies

Trail Bridge
The Ice Caves Trail is one of the busiest trails in Washington. After the old wooden bridge was washed out in a storm, a new, studier aluminum bridge was built in its place. This aluminum trail bridge is designed to carry pedestrian traffic and heavy snow loads. Due to poor site access, this bridge was helicoptered to the installation location.

Golf Course Bridge
Florida’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course commissioned a painted aluminum bridge to stand up to their heavy golf cart traffic. This scenic course valued the premium aesthetics and minimal maintenance of Gator’s structures. The bridge is also designed to carry utility pipes across the creek.

Landscape Bridge
San Fransisco’s Parks Staff call the landscaping of the playground and bridge at Delores Park “aesthetically brilliant” and “completely accessible”. A powder coated ADA accessible landscape bridge designed and fabricated by GatorBridge allows this renovated park to be used by children of all abilities.

Parks & Recreation Bridge
This stunning park bridge located in Golden Gate National Park crosses over Redwood Creek allowing pedestrians access to trails and beachfront. The aluminum bridge is decked and cladded in Ipe hardwood giving a beautiful, natural aesthetic perfect for this popular recreation area.

University / College Bridge
Borwell Reseach Facility at Dartmouths campus features an ADA accessible bridge with incorporated lighting and handicapped accessories. The bridge is powder coated white to match the modern building’s look.

Recreation Bridge
York College needed to replace the access structure leading to one of their educational facilities. The aluminum bridge leads from a natural area into a modern building and was designed with Ipe cladding and decking to incorporate design elements from both settings.

Rails to Trails Bridge
A multi-purpose rails to trails bridge was needed during the first phase of a 47 mile trail by the Florida DOT. This H5 load capacity aluminum bridge features a modifies skyway truss, concrete curbing and asphalt deck.

Custom Bridge Design
Located in Washington state, this custom bridge design features elevation change, direction change, accessible design elements, and custom gate entrances. The YWCA connects retail and community attractions to housing and parking facilities.

Recreation Bridge
Enhancing the natural landscape, these bridges invite guests to simply enjoy the beauty of what the location has to offer.

The bridge shown is one of two identical bridges that welcome students, staff and visitors into the University of Mobile's campus. Landscape architects chose these aluminum bridges during a campus restoration initiative. 

Pedestrian Bridge
One of the larger structures fabricated by the team at Gator this bridge provides residents connections to the City's Veterans Park and NW 39th Street Greenway, a multi-purpose pathway along the C-13 Canal.

Case Studies

Pipe Support Bridge
Remote location and difficult access of the installation area made an aluminum bridge the only option for this water line pipe support bridge. Both the bridge and pipe were helicoptered into the installation location. Gator customized this pipe bridge design with custom pillow supports and clearance for maintenance traffic.

Maintenance Bridge
The aluminum maintenance bridge at this reservoir facility provides access for crews as well as carries several utilities to the systems tower. This high tech facility is now building a Phase II of the project that will feature another Gator maintenance bridge.

Tactical Village Catwalks
America relies on local law enforcement to keep our hometowns safe. This training facility, located in Washington D.C., allows current and future police to react to simulated threats and dangerous situations. Gator catwalks provide supervisors a bird's eye view of training sessions.

Dozens of aluminum walkways were manufactured to become the marine terminal pictured here. GatorBridge worked closely with the energy client to provide the marine terminals in the shortest timeline possible. The aluminum's lightweighting helped the project by saving cost and time. 

Support Bridges
To meet Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) boiler compliance, a large U.S manufacturer needed a way to carry two 38" duct lines above existing buildings.

Equine Bridge
Design and engineering considerations for horseback riders was part of the client’s specifications when designing this aluminum equine trail bridge. The wood deck provides a familiar decking material to the horses and carries the additional loading requirements.

This aluminum bridge and staircase, fitted with TimberTech Docksider decking, spans over the Texas waterpark's lazy river. Custom supports were also designed by Gator's engineering team.
