Development of a Research Roadmap for ITD Bridge Section

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) Bridge Section has sponsored research related to bridge materials, design, construction, preservation, and inspection. While this research has generally produced positive results, past research efforts were requested on an ad hoc basis and perhaps do not complement or build on each other. The department is interested in adopting a more proactive and systematic approach to identifying and prioritizing research needs. The goal of this research is to develop a systematic approach and prioritized roadmap that provides a clear direction of what bridge research topics need to be addressed, consistent with ITD’s Mission – Your Safety, Your Mobility and Your Economic Opportunity. This will be accomplished through a complete review of ITD’s bridge inventory, planned programmatic activities in the Bridge Program, and previous and ongoing research projects.
