Bridges for Service Life beyond 100 Years: Innovative Systems, Subsystems, and Components

The objective of this project is to improve existing systems, subsystems, and components that historically limit the service life of bridges, and to identify and prove promising concepts for alternative systems, subsystems, and components. During the investigative phase of this project, the research team shall consider all bridge span lengths. However, the outcome of this project should focus on typical bridges, for example, bridges with one or multiple spans, with a maximum single span length of 300 feet.
