PCI West Prestressed Concrete Bridge Design 3-Day Workshop

PCI West Prestressed Concrete Bridge Design 3-Day Workshop
Government agencies in California and Nevada have set aggressive goals to build and update bridge structures as part of their highway, port and rail infrastructure programs. PCI West Bridge Producers recognize that prestressed bridge elements are key design opportunities to deliver these infrastructure programs to meet accelerated schedules. PCI West offers this workshop/webinar to bridge design and construction professionals to increase knowledge of the use of prestressed bridge elements in design and construction of bridge projects.
