Hybrid Composite Bridge

Here is an interesting company making what they call a "hybrid composite bridge". Basically, they use FRP composites for the shell, add the necessary reinforcements, then pump it full of concrete.

The company, HC Bridge Company, recently won an engineering award. I truly believe composites are a natural fit for bridges, and more of this will likely be seen in the future.
