    Attendees toured the Texas DOT bridge in Fort Worth, Texas, said to be the world’s first precast concrete network-arch bridge. Tempe, Ariz.-based Sundt Construction cast a dozen, 300-ton post-tensioned concrete arches for the $26 million project. This rendering shows the bridge as it will appear when construction is completed this fall.
The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute invited producers to Discover High Performance Precast at its 59th annual convention and National Bridge Conference, Sept. 21-24 in Grapevine, Texas. Each year, the event offers a unique opportunity for precasters to expand their knowledge, learn about new products and technologies, and develop vital relationships within the industry.
