Kleinfelder is the world’s first engineering company to incorporate a pioneering yet transferable technology in its design of four bridges in Maine. The Bridge-in-a-Backpack superstructure is composed of lightweight carbon-fiber tube arches that are filled with concrete onsite. Its efficiency, cost-effectiveness, quality, and sustainability underscores Kleinfelder’s surface transportation innovation and expertise.
The Bridge-in-a-Backpack solution saves time and money without sacrificing the integrity or lifespan of the bridge structure. With hundreds of bridges worldwide needing repair or replacement, using carbon fiber technology in bridge structures could result in more expedient openings of bridge replacement projects.
