The Vital Role of Bridge Repair Travelers

Maintaining and repairing bridges is essential for public safety and infrastructure longevity. At American Crane & Equipment Corporation (ACECO), we offer advanced solutions for these critical tasks, including our specialized bridge maintenance and repair travelers. Bridge repair travelers play a vital role providing safe and efficient access to the undersides of bridges, surpassing traditional scaffolding methods.

What are Bridge Maintenance and Repair Travelers?

Bridge repair travelers are movable platforms that enable technicians to inspect and maintain bride structures from beneath. These platforms are designed to move along the bridge, allowing uninterrupted traffic flow while work is being done. They come equipped with numerous features to ensure safety and efficiency, such as:

  • Anti-skewing technology: Ensures stable operation on uneven or misaligned runways.
  • Fully enclosed work platforms: Provides a secure environment to prevent falls.
  • Non-slip surfaces: Reduces the risk of slipping and accidents.
  • On-board personnel lifts: Enhances accessibility to various bridge areas.
  • Portable controls: Facilitates easy and precise operation.
  • Redundant drop capture systems: Prevents separation from the bridge for added safety.

  • Personnel seating

  • Coast Guard-approved navigation lights
  • Diagnostic equipment
  • Backup motors
  • Emergency stop buttons
