SPR-4635: New Repair Strategies for Life-Cycle Extension of Corroded Steel Girder Bridges

This project collaborates and builds upon ongoing project SPR-4527 on the “Strength of Corroded Steel Beam Bridges and Effects on Load Rating.” Decommissioned corroded steel girder bridges obtained from the North-Split Reconstruction project will be shared between the proposed project and SPR 4527. It is important to note that SPR 4527 focuses only on the strength and load rating of corroded steel girder bridges, not their rapid repair or life-cycle extension.
