Bridges Showcase Versa-Brix® Vertical

Two recent bridge projects showcase the key benefits of the Versa-Brix® Vertical thin brick inlay system from Architectural Polymers.

When the 14th Street Viaduct in Hoboken, NJ was declared structurally deficient, the New Jersey State Historic Preservation Office required that a replacement structure appropriately reflect the city's historic district. Ultimately, brick was selected for the design, but traditional brick was labor intensive and, therefore, cost prohibitive. The Versa-Brix® Vertical inlay system with Endicott® Thin Brick allowed the designers to achieve the look of brick while providing a green, cost-effective solution.

When Hubbard's Bridge in Monmouth County, NJ was experiencing sever corrosion issues, they began work on a replacement. The project to replace the bridge would allow for wider travel lanes with shoulders and wider sidewalks along both sides of the bridge. Borough officials requested early in the design process that the new bridge match another recently reconstructed bridge nearby. Contractors used the Versa-Brix® Vertical inlay system with Summitville® Thin Brick Red #10 to replicate the brick parapets of the nearby Cooper's Bridge.
