Finished McGee Bridge

Secretary Of Transportation Impressed By Arches

US Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood visited the AEWC (our R&D partner and a leading facility for advanced composite materials) today to see and learn about our composite arch bridge technology. Congressman Mike Michaud and Governor Baldacci were also in attendance. The Secretary, pictured below, got a firsthand feel for our lightweight arches. He easily lifted this 60 foot composite arch (with a little help from Governor Baldacci).

Secretary LaHood is especially interested in our arches because they fit into the Obama administration’s focus on reducing the carbon footprint and revitalizing the Nation's crumbling infrastructure. 

Secretary LaHood’s visit fell on the same day we began construction on our second arch bridge, the McGee Bridge, in Anson Maine.
