Complex Rehabilitation

As infrastructure ages, American Bridge performs highly specialized work on in-service cable supported, movable, truss, and arch bridges.

We specialize in complex rehabilitation and demolition projects that require extensive means and methods engineering, leveraging our skills toward the development of unique solutions to the most challenging construction problems. American Bridge has worked on and rehabilitated some of the most critical and congested bridges, including the George Washington, often referred to as the world’s busiest automotive bridge. Just because our work starts, doesn’t mean traffic stops, so we look for innovative ways to reduce the project’s impact on the traveling public, keeping them safe and moving.
