Identify the Risk Factors That Contribute To Fatalities and Serious Injuries and Implement Evidence-Based Risk Elimination and Mitigation Strategies

Construction activities related to bridge replacement and rehabilitation are significant contributors to safety hazards. The safety hazards attributed to construction work zones are alarming and accordingly, safety is a major focus of 2018-2022 US DOT Strategic plan. One of the potential advantages of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) is improving safety by reducing onsite construction activities. No good documentation is available yet for ABC potential for improving safety. This project with involve collaboration between UNR and FIU and ISU to collect and interpret quantitative data related to ABC contribution to safety.
