MSU Develops New Money-Saving Concrete to Be Used in Montana
Montana State University is not only going to space but they're also helping people travel around Montana with ease.
Montana State University has announced that they've developed a money saving concrete that will be used this summer to help fix bridges near Wisdom, Montana. This new concrete is extremely strong and durable - and if a success, could be applied to future projects in Montana.
This project was a team effort between Montana State University and the Department of Transportation and has been getting developed over the past five years. This concrete not only uses less water for their mixture but is apparently five times stronger than regular concrete.
The one thing Montana always has - is construction all year long. Whether it's dealing with roads, bridges or other infrastructure, the Department of Transportation and other companies in Montana would love a new concrete that not only saves them money but is stronger and will last longer. Montana has a lot of bridges that need upkeep or need to be completely redone - and this could be a huge game changer.
Montana State University has been getting recognition for many of their incredible programs like sending a probe to the Moon and many agriculture feats, but this concrete could be an instant help in Montana which is fantastic.
By starting off with a smaller project like these bridges near Wisdom, we could see these being used to build new bridges or fix bridges all over the state within the next few years.
