The January 2012 presentation discussed the Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP2) ABC toolbox that was developed under R04, “Innovative Bridge Designs for Rapid Renewal.” The February presentation described how the toolbox was used in two bridge construction pilot projects. The first project, built in 2011, was the US 6 Bridge over Keg Creek in Iowa, in which the bridge was replaced with a 14-day closure using prefabricated elements. The second project, to be let in 2012, is the I-84 Bridge over Dingle Ridge Road in New York, in which two adjacent bridges carrying I-84 was laterally slid into place each over a weekend. Learn how the standard plans and details in the toolbox were used to ensure success on these projects.
