Deterioration of bridges has been well recognized throughout the world. The estimated repair and replacement cost is $229 billion for the U.S. highway bridges alone. Recently an innovative construction material made of recycled plastics was introduced to the market. This new sustainable material can provide a cost-effective solution to the currently deteriorating infrastructure and at the same time provide an excellent solution to the environmental issues of plastic waste.
