Webinar: State of the Art Concepts for Precast Bridge Design

Webinar: State of the Art Concepts for Precast Bridge Design
This webinar will discuss recent advancements in how precast concrete is being used on modern bridge projects throughout the United States. Recent project experiences are featured to demonstrate how creative designs using precast, prestressed concrete have enhanced the success of numerous bridge projects. Design concepts will be discussed that that are currently available to Designers, Owners and Contractors to assist them in determining appropriate solutions for precast substructures and superstructures. Means and methods in fabrication and construction be discussed using actual project experiences. Design concepts that are being proposed for future projects will also be featured. The presentation will showcase the versatility and constructability that can be achieved by using precast, prestressed concrete elements in bridge construction which has resulted in:
  • A Safer Work Environment
  • Better Quality Materials and Workmanship
  • Greater economy
  • Reduced construction schedules
  • Less Impact to the pubic during construction
  • Aesthetic enhancements to the completed project
