Press Herald Column on Bridge-in-a-Backpack

The news that the Bridge-in-a-Backpack technology developed at UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center has won national approval from a group of transportation officials as the subject of a column in the Portland Press Herald. The column argued that the technology, which is a composite bridge that can be built faster, lighter and stronger than conventional concrete or steel bridges, deserves more attention from state government than it is getting. Brit Svoboda, a UMaine graduate to whose company UMaine licensed the technology, said Maine should be proud of what was created and developed at UMaine.
