The staff at ASPIRE, which is dedicated to concrete bridges, should be proud to know that some of the comments we re from roadway professionals!

Editor, I wanted to take the time to compliment you and your staff at ASPIRE. I very much enjoy reading ASPIRE. The feature articles are always well chosen, and the quality of the entire publication is excellent. It has been said that the difficult task in creating interesting and informative technical writing is to convey your message as briefly as possible and then allow your readers to do their own further fact finding as needed. Your featured topics are succinctly presented and cover a broad spectrum of bridge engineering and construction. Keep up the great work. I look forward to receiving the next issue. William J.
