Searching for a bridge design that marries both form and function? Both structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing, the Freedom Series Thru Truss refers to a type of high or box truss bridge that utilizes portal frames to increase span capacity. Read on to learn more about this unique bridge series from U.S. Bridge.
Get to Know the Freedom Series Thru Truss
Accommodating bridge spans up to 300 feet, the Freedom Series Thru Truss is a popular bridge design, and with good reason. Boasting an all-bolted construction, this design is easy to erect and virtually maintenance-free. Choose from galvanized or self-weathering finishes and asphalt, concrete, or metal orthotropic decks. Crafted in accordance with AASHTO Standards, the Freedom Series Thru Truss has a 35-year galvanized rust-free warranty and a lifespan of over 100 years.
Projects Featuring the Freedom Series
The U.S. Bridge Freedom Series Thru Truss is a top choice among construction companies throughout the country. For instance, the U.S. Bridge team consulted on a bridge project by Tioga Construction. Located in Warren County, N.Y., this bridge was created to replace the century-old Milton Street bridge.
Spanning the Schroon River, the new design echoes the look and feel of the previous bridge while enhancing safety and longevity. Boasting two lanes instead of one, the 155-foot structure features a five-foot-wide sidewalk and self-weathering finish. Thanks to the double bottom chord tension member design, there’s no way for water and debris to accumulate. The end result is that the bridge lasts longer and looks better.
