Areté Structures Pedestrian Overpass Bridges

At Areté Structures, our goal is to instill confidence in you throughout the pedestrian overpass bridge design, manufacture, delivery, and assembly process.


High-Quality Bridge Material – FRP

We offer our customers fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) as the bridge material of choice to provide you with the highest quality of bridge material. 

FRP is high strength and corrosion-resistant, making it the ideal material for pedestrian overpass bridges. It allows you to transport and install your FRP bridge easily.

The Areté Structures bridges are custom designed to meet your project specifications. Our fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) pedestrian overpass bridges: 

  • Are extremely lightweight (FRP is a quarter of steel’s weight)
  • Has a 100+ year lifespan
  • Can be installed with hand tools (heavy equipment not needed)
  • Guarantees quick and easy installation 
  • Reduces your onsite construction time 
  • Lowers overall construction costs 
  • Requires minimal ongoing maintenance

Our Manufacturing Process

To guarantee a first-rate pedestrian overpass bridge, we provide our customers with:

  • Precision CNC machine to fabricate all critical bridge members 
  • Pre-label bridge components before delivery
  • Critical Component Pre-Assembly Certification to guarantee fit and function
