Vorheesville Elementary School Project Overview

The Voorheesville Elementary School crossing was a prefabricated bridge manufactured remotely and then shipped to the site for installation by others. A stunning architectural landmark for the school the Decero™ Design team visualized a 55 foot long free span structure built to sustain a 100PSF loading capacity with a hearty extruded truss hand rail, custom post caps, and contrasting color palette that blends with the classic architecture of the campus. From an off-site build to an seamless on-site installation the YBC team coordinated a safe crossing for elementary students and faculty that empowers their daily commute with a stylish approach to their day.

Client Testimonial

“It was our pleasure partnering with York Bridge Concepts™ on the design of the pedestrian bridge for the Voorheesville Elementary School. Built with timber throughout, YBC designed a custom H-Style Pedestrian Bridge to complement the school and provide accessibility for students and residents of the Voorheesville area. Beautiful & structurally sound, this York Structure stands out as a signature piece for the Voorheesville Elementary School!”
– Gene Browning, AIA Associate, Mosaic Associate Architects
