Truss and bow string

The bowstring truss bridge creates an arch formation and mimics many of the attributes of the tied arch. The significant difference is that it allows simpler design and construction detailing, resulting in a more cost-effective solution. We have extensive experience in the design, manufacture and installation of these globally popular bridges.
