The session, Proven Performance of FRP Composites in Bridge Construction, is designed to educate bridge engineers about the benefits of using FRP composites in bridge installations, including inspection of bridge decks, advancements in rehabilitation and new field installations of cable stays and girders. The session will be from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon in Room 301 of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, where the conference is being held.
