Compilation of ABC Solutions

Development of accelerated bridge systems has been occurring across the country, many times in isolation. Although the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and others have worked to facilitate communication between these efforts, there as of yet does not exist a comprehensive resource to aid designers in selecting an appropriate system for a particular project. This project will expand and enhance the existing FHWA accelerated bridge construction (ABC) project database. The objective of the project is to compile information on existing accelerated bridge technologies and present the information in a manner useful to designers. The compilation will include all bridge types constructed of any material, using accelerated bridge construction. Alternatives and objective information will be provided, allowing the end user to make an informed decision regarding the suitability of any particular system in a particular circumstance.
