Arizona DOT Uses Composites to Strengthen Bridges in Phoenix

July 24 2017

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has used carbon fiber strips that are “coated and strengthened with a reinforcing polymer” to fix girders on state highway bridges in Phoenix. According to ADOT, one of those bridges is no longer listed as structurally deficient as a result.

Instead of traditional repair methods such as injecting epoxy to rebuild sections of the steel-reinforced concrete girders, crews used an FRP process from QuakeWrap – a member of the American Composites Manufacturers Association and a specialist in using composites to repair infrastructure. The repairs mark the first time ADOT has used CFRP composites to fix girders on state highway bridges.
