Warren Truss Prefabricated Steel Bridges


The Warren Truss provides optimum efficiency and offers an alternative appearance for medium to long spans.  A parallel chord truss with diagonals in alternating directions creating a “W” pattern,  the Warren Truss may or may not include vertical members.

Many Warren Truss styles include overhead bracing.  Overhead bracing often reduces member sizes by adding stability and may be required for the longest spans.  The bridge depth of section, measured from the top of deck to the bottom of the lowest member (typically the bottom chord) can be minimized by adding overhead bracing.  For bridges requiring fencing or covered enclosure of the top, designs with overhead bracing are preferred.        View Examples
