Historic Resiliency of Bridges on the BOSFOLK Corridor

The Boston-Norfolk (BOSFOLK) corridor is a major transportation corridor in the northeast, the main artery of which is Interstate-95 (I-95). With construction initiating in the 1960's, many of the bridges on I-95 and in the corridor are nearing the end of their design life. This presents a unique opportunity to study the long-term performance of bridge on a major heavily traveled corridor. The questions can be asked - How resilient were the bridges in the BOSFOLK corridor? And - How did the bridges on I-95 perform compared to those not on the I-95 corridor? The study will specifically examine the historic resiliency of bridges in the corridor. It will be done through a systematic investigation of historic data from the National Bridge Inventory database.
