  • No heavy equipment required, ideal for the compact location
  • Required Just-In-Time delivery, as site conditions did not allow for storage space
  • AIT’s first bridge in Rhode Island
  • Utilized existing abutments 
"Having AIT as a part of the project team was crucial to the success of the project. I appreciated their vested interest in the success of the project and know I could count on them to be valuable resource. I was very impressed that Wendell [Harriman] was onsite while we were installing FRP components and was provided essential technical assistance to ease the assembly process."
