Voorheesville Elementary School Bridge: A Blend of Style and Functionality

At York Bridge Concepts, we are proud to showcase our project—the installation of a stunning pedestrian bridge at Voorheesville Elementary School in Voorheesville, NY. This bridge is not just a functional necessity; it's an architectural statement that enhances the daily journey of students and faculty alike.

Custom-Designed for Durability and Aesthetics

Our Decero™ Design team meticulously crafted a 55-foot-long freestanding bridge, designed to effortlessly support a load of 100 pounds per square foot. The bridge features a robust, extruded truss handrail system adorned with custom post caps, contributing both to its strength and visual appeal. The chosen color palette harmonizes beautifully with the school's classic architectural style, creating a seamless integration with the existing campus environment.

Precision Engineering & Streamlined Installation

Manufactured off-site to ensure precision and quality, the bridge was then transported to Voorheesville, where it was installed by local professionals. This process allowed for a quick and efficient installation, minimizing disruption to the school's daily activities and ensuring a safe, immediate pathway for school traffic upon completion.
