Utilizing standardized prefabricated components, Bailey bridges can be built to match a wide range of vehicular bridging applications. Because of their excellent versatility and overall value, thousands of Bailey bridges have been installed throughout the world.


For highway use, typical Bailey bridge clear spans range from 20 ft to 200 ft. Multiple-span bridges of any length are possible by incorporating intermediate supporting piers.
