AIT Bridges' most recent composite arch bridge, in Duvall, WA has been featured in The Seattle Times by Mike Lindblom. The article details the promising abilities the composite arch bridge system can bring to the fish passage rehabilitation program in Washington. The program aims to fix an estimated 1,526 road crossings in the state for better usage from wildlife, specifically the steelhead, soho and other fish that use streams and culverts for spawning. The article features commentary from WSDOT bridge engineer Mark Gaines, environmental scientist for the Tulalip Tribes Colin Wahl, and marketer for AIT Bridges Colby Kohn.
