Bedford Highlighting ReadySpan Bridge

Bedford Reinforced Plastics — a full-service supplier offering an extensive line of fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) products and services — highlighted its ReadySpan bridge systems at the PTBA Sustainable Trails Conference, held March 19-21, 2024, in Lanier Islands, Georgia.

The ReadySpan pedestrian, equestrian and light vehicle bridges are lightweight, high-strength and designed to withstand the harshest outdoor conditions. FRP material is resistant to heat, high winds, rain, snow and saltwater. It won’t shrink, swell, warp, corrode or attract insects — outperforming wood and steel bridges year after year. 

ReadySpan bridges are ready for quick shipping whenever needed and easy to assemble upon arrival with a few common tools. ReadySpan bridges are also available completely pre-assembled for added installation convenience.

“Bedford ReadySpan bridges provide those in the trail and parks industry with a low-maintenance, cost-effective and long-lasting option when it comes to their bridge solutions,” said Eric Kidd, marketing director for Bedford Reinforced Plastics. “Whether the bridge is on a rugged ATV trail, community park or anything in between, the ReadySpan solution lasts decades longer and features safer conditions than bridges made of wood or steel – and without sacrificing any aesthetics in the process.”

ReadySpan bridges are available in a range of sizes and capable of meeting the demands of load carrying conditions. 

ReadySpan bridge applications include:

  • State parks
  • Hiking and biking trails
  • ATV and equestrian trails
  • New & replacement installations
