FiberSPAN-C, a Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite sidewalk system allows a lightweight pedestrian bridge to be cantilevered off a vehicle bridge. The cost effective FRP panels are 80 percent lighter than reinforced concrete panels. Prefabrication makes construction quicker and installation costs lower. FRP’s corrosion resistance to chemicals and water means zero maintenance for a structure that will last nearly 100 years. These features make FiberSPAN-C ideal for replacing existing, narrow concrete sidewalks or adding new bicycle/pedestrian paths.
