Adaptable and re-deployable bridge systems for permanent or temporary applications
Modern iterations of the classic “Bailey Bridge” design
Algonquin Modular Panel Bridges are the latest evolution of the original “Bailey Bridge” system that played a key part in Second World War troop movements and reconstruction efforts. In partnership with Mabey Bridge since 1996, we offer two types of these popular bridge systems for temporary or permanent applications.
- The Algonquin Modular Panel Bridge System uses 3 m pinned panels to achieve clear spans of more than 82 m for pedestrian, vehicular and utility support applications.
- The Algonquin Modular Bolted Truss System uses innovative 2.25 m long panels that are bolted to top and bottom chord members to form pre-cambered side trusses that carry the applied loads and counter dead load deflection.
Ready to ship for emergency or detour bridge requirements
Algonquin Bridge maintains an inventory of these popular systems ready to be shipped anywhere in Canada for permanent or temporary applications, like detour bridges or emergency bridge washout replacements. More about Emergency Bridges
These “Bailey Bridge” style systems are easy to assemble, install and re-use
All components are hot dip-galvanized for maximum durability. They are easy to assemble with local crews and are completely reusable. Assembled bridges can be cantilever-launched from one side or they can be crane lifted into place.
Emergency or detour rental bridge program
Reduce your costs and free up capital for other purposes. Short- or long-term bridge rentals can be arranged with Canada-wide distribution and support. More about Rental Bridges.

View this animated video of how a typical Modular Panel Bridge is assembled and cantilever launched from one side without the need for heavy lifting equipment.
When the Ministre des Transports Quebec required a temporary detour solution for their bridge replacement project on Autoroute 40, near Berthierville, an Algonquin Modular Panel Bridge System filled the gap. The launch was executed from one side using a fully cantilevered sequence with a 10-bay launch nose. When all was ready, on-site equipment nudged the structure across the river to the opposite side.
