Construction of New Substructure Beneath Existing Bridges

The objectives of this project include three main focus areas: (1) documenting, through a literature search and survey, methods (including but not limited to multi-splicing and micropiles) for constructing new substructures beneath existing bridges; (2) evaluating proven methods in terms of design considerations, construct-ability, and cost; and (3) documenting the project findings and developing method selection recommendations/guidelines.
