Description: The Iowa DOT, in partnership with Iowa State University, has made ABC a practical alternative in their State. The Iowa DOT / ISU partnership extends to counties in Iowa, where significant ABC research has been undertaken. This presentation described various Prefabricated Bridge Elements and Systems that have been developed or are under development with Iowa local systems specifically in mind. It focused on Iowa’s general perspective on the use of ABC, experience within the State using PBES, and various collaborative research projects that have resulted in multiple implementable tools for local systems engineers.
