Frequently Asked Questions
Our company supplies affordable, high-quality bridges which can be installed quickly and last for decades with little to no maintenance.
Roadrunner Bridge was developed as a new venture of The Henry Group, Inc. in 2021. The company was formed to meet a demand for pre-manufactured bridges in the commercial and governmental marketplace.
Yes. We sell lighter weight trail bridges for load limits up to 2 tons, middle weight utility bridges for load limits up to 8 tons, and heavy weight, traffic bridges for load limits up to highway class requirements.
A pre-manufactured bridge is built in a factory and brought to the jobsite ready to install. This saves money over traditional, stick built bridge solutions. Many times, there is a cost savings to clear spanning a creek or ravine instead of installing a pipe or culvert solution. This solution is usually more environmentally friendly and can save time from the need to dewater an installation site.
Most of our trail bridges and utility bridges can be installed by the property owner himself, or by a qualified contractor. Our heavier weight, traffic bridges are also easy to install, but usually require an engineered, abutment foundation and professional installation.
Steel that is manufactured and distributed in the US remains the material of choice for strong, affordable bridge structures for our market segment. (To learn more about the advantages of small span, steel bridges please visit https://www.shortspansteelbridges.org)
Our trail bridges range in price from around $7,500 to $16,000. Our utility bridges range in price from around $20,000 to $49,000. Our heavy weight vehicular bridges range from $45,000 to $250,000 and can span up to 100 feet.
Our goal is to keep our most popular sizes of trail and utility bridges in stock, and ready for immediate shipment. If a common size is out of stock when the order is received, it should still be able to ship in under 30 days, in most cases. Our fully engineered, heavy weight traffic bridges can usually ship within 3 to 6 months, depending on market demand at the time.
Yes. We offer competitive financing with approved credit.
Our trail bridges range in size from 4 to 7 feet wide and offer a clear span up to 20 feet long. Our utility bridges range in size from 8 to 10 feet wide and offer a clear span up to 40 feet long. (Any of these size bridges can add additional support columns in the bridged area for greater span distance.) Our heavy weight traffic bridges range in size from 16 to 40 feet wide and offer a clear span of up to 100 feet.
