Description: Bridge bundling is an important ABC planning and programming tool because of the time and cost savings that can be achieved by bundling multiple bridges into a single project. Bundling can lead to shorter duration projects through efficiencies gained in similar work types and coordinated phasing, but it can also accelerate entire bridge programs for owners. FHWA has recently published the Bridge Bundling Guidebook (BBG), a how-to manual that leads users through 10 steps for developing an effective bundling program. The guide includes readily useable tools to assist in delivering bundled projects, including selection criteria, sample contract documents, and case studies. Topics covered include project delivery methods, funding and financing, coalition building, and risk assessment. This webinar will provide an overview of the development and content of the Bridge Bundling Guidebook which can be applied at the project level and program/strategic level. Examples of bridge bundling projects are included.
