Bridges & Roads

Published:

Hamilton Kent understands the challenges facing government at all levels as transportation officials search for ways to rebuild failing infrastructure. That’s why we have developed long-lasting solutions that lower lifecycle costs. Like our bridge and pavement seals, which are flexible enough to prevent bridge decks and pavement from cracking as they expand and contract throughout the year. Or, for precast concrete bridge sections, our rubber bearing pads reduce vibration and resist wear and tear to help increase the lifespan of the structure. For long-lasting sustainable solutions, look to Hamilton Kent seals and pads for bridges and roads.
