    Dedicated to providing a cost-efficient and long lasting solution to the nation’s infrastructure crisis
    Proprietary composite arch tube system for bridge construction
    Arches are light weight, high strength and corrosive resistant -reduce lifecycle costs
    Completed first bridge in Pittsfield, ME
    Second bridge installed August 2009
    Pipeline includes 16 bridge projects
  • 4. 151,253 bridges in the U.S. are deficient

    Age of Bridge
    AASHTO – Bridging the Gap, July 2008
  • 5. Why are bridges deteriorating?
    August 27, 2009
    Confidential
    5
    Solutions recommended by AASHTO:
    • Research and innovation – new design, materials and technology
    • 6. Investment – federal, state and local
    Reaching age expectancy threshold
    Environmental factors ; freezing and thawing cycles, deicing salts
    Most bridges are concrete with steel reinforced rebar
    Corrosion of steel breaks down integrity of concrete structure
    Concrete Corrosion Cycle
    Steel rebar rusts and expands
    Spalling of concrete further exposes rebar

    Report by American Society of Civil Engineers in early 2009 concluded $17.0B annual investment needed
    $10.5B is currently spent per year on the construction and maintenance of bridges
    ARRA signed into law on Feb 17, 2009 (stimulus plan)
    Included $27.5B for highway and bridge construction
    “…the largest increase in funding of our nation’s roads, bridges, and mass transit systems since the creation of the national highway system in the 1950s” – Obama Admin.
