Timber Bridge Repair

Extending the service life of these "work horses" of the railroad industry has been one of our strengths for over 50 years. With specialized tools developed from years of experience, our repair crews can efficiently replace all of the components in these timeless structures.


Cap, post and stringer change-outs are the most common areas for upgrades due to decay or the effects of heavier axle loads. Even ballast deck bridges can enjoy the same level of service with our unique tool set that allows for selective stringer change-outs.


Employing concrete caps and steel stringers, Koppers Railroad Structures can increase capacity of these structures without incurring the high cost for replacement. When maximizing your maintenance dollar is imperative, we have the tools and experience to deliver engineered solutions for large "legacy" structures or smaller bridges in hard to reach locations.
