Installation:

March 2005

A Tri-County Constructors multi-bridge project in South Florida moved at full speed. Ten bridges were installed along the commuter rail corridor that serves Broward, Palm and Dade counties.

The Continental® overpass bridges vary in length from 35’ to over 85’. Once the overpasses were completed, they allowed Tri-Rail™ customers to safely crossover the northbound and southbound tracks to gain access to the train of their choice.

The pedestrian truss bridges were painted various custom colors to compliment the architecture at the stations. The prefabricated bridges are designed with cast-in-place concrete decking and powder coated mesh side panels are installed on each overpass to enhance pedestrian safety. Each of the prefabricated bridges were delivered to their respective sites in one piece and installed in a day or less.

Tri-Rail™ is South Florida’s premier commuter rail service. It provides a convenient, comfortable and affordable way to travel throughout South Florida. The service offers passengers air-conditioned service from Miami to West Palm Beach seven days a week.
