Precast Systems for Rapid Construction of Bridge Substructures

The Bridge Office is beginning a program of research into bridge designs that facilitate rapid construction. This study will develop practical and safe precast systems for the construction of bridge substructures taking advantage of concepts recently developed for buildings. Verification of the design will be done through instrumentation of an upcoming WSDOT structure. Primary benefits of the precast systems would be shorter construction time and less disruption of traffic.
