Op-Ed Defends State’s Stance on UMaine Bridge Technology

In an opinion piece in the Portland Press Herald, a public information officer for the Maine Department of Transportation defended the state’s response to the news that the Bridge-in-a-Backpack technology developed at UMaine had received a key approval from a national group of transportation officials. Responding to a column in Wednesday’s Press Herald, the officer wrote that the Maine DOT supports the research with funds to develop further improvements, including designing longer bridge spans and shapes, making them more marketable to all states.
