Priority Routes for Earthquake Response

This project aims to identify and then collect key information for Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) bridges along priority emergency routes in southern Illinois. The information being collected and organized in a database includes: principal structural features, significant structural details, design specification(s) used, and existence and extent of retrofits. Based on the inforamtion collected, the likely vulnerable details are being identified for each bridge, along with retrofit strategies and possible deficiencies that are outside the scope of retrofits considered. The reliability of all the information developed in this project will be checked through field-examination of two stretches of roadway.
