Pedestrian and footbridges are becoming more and more common in the U.S. They are regularly seen over highways, railroad tracks, rivers and wetlands. They serve an important function – to provide a safe crossing for walkers, runners, cyclists and even animals.
The vast majority of pedestrian bridges are constructed from structural steel rather than other materials such as concrete, a common material used in vehicular bridges. Structural steel delivers the strength and durability these bridges need to hold up to high foot traffic year after year.
