FRP Helps Construction Crew Beat Winter Weather, Solve Multiple Issues With Yellowstone National Park Landmark Bridge

Yellowstone National Park’s Fishing Bridge was aptly named when it was built in 1902. The rough-hewn corduroy log bridge straddled a major spawning area for cutthroat trout and attracted anglers by the droves. The bridge was rebuilt in 1937 and closed to fishing in 1973 following a decline in the fish population.  When Hamilton Construction was subcontracted to install a new deck on the bridge, the crew faced several challenges, namely a short window of opportunity dictated by weather and the tourist season. The company couldn’t close the bridge until Oct. 15 when the park closed to visitors but only had until Nov. 5 to remove and replace asphalt and planking with a new deck. Prefabricated FiberSPAN FRP panels proved to be the right choice.  Read more>>>

High School Students “Go To Work” For A Day At Composite Advantage

In October Composite Advantage hosted a group of 45 local high school students as part of national Manufacturing Day. The group of high school students touring Composite Advantage were interested in the engineering aspect of working with fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. They were able to examine FRP material firsthand and learn why the material is so beneficial in infrastructure applications. To read more about what students saw and did read our blog.

A Tale Of Two Bridges

It’s been a busy year for Composite Advantage especially when it comes to contributing to the rehabilitation and restoration of historic bridges. FiberSPAN FRP has become the go-to material for historic bridges due to its lightweight and ability to extend the life of these protected structures.  London, Ontario held a grand opening celebration on Dec. 1 for its newly restored Blackfriars Bridge. The bridge is one of the oldest and rarest bridges in Canada.  Peevy Road Bridge [County Bridge 231] in Montgomery County, Pennyslvania re-opened to traffic in November after receiving a new FiberSPAN deck. The structure was built in 1880 by a Dayton, Ohio company that like Composite Advantage was ahead of its time. Read more about these projects .
