SPECIAL NOTE ON PRIVATE BRIDGES: In the past Swatco has had one private bridge partially collapse and another completely collapse when our equipment, at bridge owners request, has used private bridges. Therefore, Swatco will not cross a private bridge with our equipment unless the owner provides proper documentation from a licensed Professional Engineer of the bridges load rating with the document also including an expiration date on when the document needs to be renewed.
