Our engineered solutions deliver environmental benefits in many different ways:

  • Recycled and recyclable steel
    Many of AIL products use a high degree of steel, the world’s most-recycled and most-recyclable material. Steel products also use less energy to manufacture, ship and install than their concrete counterparts.
  • Naturally weathering steel
    Our Prefabricated Bridges are made from recycled steel and are available in a naturally-weathering steel that provides a number of environmental benefits.
  • Minimal site impact
    Efficient bridge and culvert designs install quickly and easily with minimal site impact.
  • Open-flow designs
    Wide-span capability prevents blockages and flooding associated with concrete box designs.
  • Low maintenance
    Virtually no maintenance compared to concrete, reduces future costs, negative site impact.
  • Salt and soft water
    Use of corrosion/abrasion-resistant Dur•A•Span Aluminum protects both salt and soft water habitat.
  • Fish passages
    Fish baffle inserts and open-bottomed culverts with integrated footings facilitate fish movement.
  • Wildlife crossings
    Custom-designed underpass and overpass crossings help protect species, preserve habitat, and increase safety.
