- From an old Kentucky Transportation Cabinet web page: "Interested in seeing the world's longest plastic bridge? Visit Johnson County, where the 410-ft-long Forest and Maxie Preston Memorial Pedestrian Bridge recently opened. The bridge was built from a high performance composite material - glass fiber that is reinforced with plastic resins."
- A University of Kentucky web page refers to the deck material as "glass fiber-reinforced polymer composites."
