San Mateo-Hayward Bridge Polyester Concrete Complete

The deck rehabilitation of the historic San Mateo-Hayward Bridge high rise section is complete after a full closure over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The majority of the work required removal of the existing epoxy asphalt bridge deck overlay and replacement with a specialized version of Kwik Bond Polymer’s PPC1121 using a Zinc Primer on the orthotropic steel deck. http://abc7news.com/traffic/san-mateo-bridge-reopens-after-weekend-closure/740497/

60 Minutes Highlights America’s Failing Infrastructure

60 Minutes Highlights America’s Failing Infrastructure

Last week 60 Minutes on CBS featured a segment on the country’s failing infrastructure. See the video here. They clearly made the point that funding must be secured to repair and rebuild our nation’s bridges.  We at KBP are part of the solution by offering cost effective preservation systems that extend the life of bridges while minimally impacting the travelling public.  Please take a few minutes to watch the news report in the link above, and share it with anyone who may be interested in this critical and time sensitive issue.
