Modular Bridges 

At Custom Bridges and Boardwalks, we offer the most environmentally friendly options at lower cost with rapid turnaround. Each project is custom engineered to fit our client’s requirements. Parks, Golf Courses, Snowmobile Trails, Wetlands and more, we can fabricate a bridge or boardwalk for any site. Our team is here to get every bridge from initial definition to future service, ensuring long term quality and satisfaction.

Custom Bridges and Boardwalks can get engaged at the very early stages of a project. We provide free site visits to help analyze the project and make recommendations for the right bridge solution. You can get a quote to use in a grant application quickly and easily.   

Concept 

With 30 years of experience, we can quickly turn around a concept that meets the site requirements and visually pleasing. Our teams work closely with our clients to build exactly what they need to get over it. Our modular construction and portable footing system allow us to quickly move from concept to design and engineering.  

DESIGN

Once the concept and project definition are completed, we can quickly design the bridge. We use the latest technology to create 2D and 3D models of the project and can quickly share this information with architects and engineers. 

During this phase we ensure that the correct size components are used to provide the most cost effective and quickest turnaround design. This is also the phase in which any additional modification or customizations are made. We are always happy to make possible modifications and customizations a reality.  

ENGINEERING

After in house design is complete, we work with our Engineering Partners with the appropriate state license for your project. Our modular design allows us to work quickly and closely with our partners and supply the information required for our customer’s engineering team.  

MANUFACTURING

Once designs are complete and engineering has been approved, we kick off our manufacturing process. The custom components for each bridge are manufactured to the exact specifications. We pre-fabricate as much as possible to save time and lower costs.  

We have been manufacturing high quality welded steel products since 1965 and take pride in fabrication. We have great sources of supply for high quality steel and lumber and can typically start work after beams are sourced, typically within 2 weeks. It is typical for us to be able to supply a complete bridge kit with lumber and footings 8-12 weeks after engineering approval.  

INSTALLATION

Because our modular designs allow for quick turn-around our installation process is formulaic. Most bridges can be installed in 2-3 days with a crew of 3. 

Unlike prefabricated bridges, helical piers and concrete abutments, Custom Bridges and Boardwalks require much less heavy equipment and create less site disruption. This means lower environmental impact and lower installation costs.  

We offer Site Construction services to allow you to have only on contractor to work with for the complete project. If you use these services, we can handle site reclamation, concrete and blacktop, and other elements require to integrate your bridge or boardwalk into your site.  

service

After a project is complete, we are here for any service needs. This includes inspection, re-leveling, or re-decking along with correcting any other issues that arise. 

The deck and rail lumber should last between 20 and 30 years with our current lumber before needing replacement. WIth that said we know an occasional board will break and we can provide replacements as needed. 

modular boardwalks

Our modular boardwalk systems make it easy for us to complete turnkey projects or kits to be installed by the custom, a local contractor, or a group of volunteers.

Boardwalk kits can be supplied with and without lumber panels allowing customers to buy a few brackets and pans at a time and customize the boardwalk to any configuration or budget.

Custom Boardwalks likes to get engaged at the very early stages of a project. Our design guides provide helpful information help quickly define the scope of your project. 

Virtual Site visits can help the end customer configure the right kit for their needs with our years of expertise.

Because our modular designs allow for quick turn-around our installation process is formulaic.  Boardwalks can be installed by a crew of 3 at a rate of 80 -100 linear feet a day depending on the design and site conditions.
