Updating the Bridge Construction Time Estimation Tool

The purpose of this project is to update the bridge construction time estimation tool that was developed in an earlier project (contract 1027132; see https://rip.trb.org/View/1457082) and develop and administer training to District resident engineers and construction staff. The functionality of the bridge contract time determination tool will be modified to accommodate recent changes to the bridge construction specifications to accommodate changes in the cure time and strength gain of bridge components needed to start the successor task. This work may include additional analysis and revision of production rate calculations including spreadsheet and macro revisions. Training will be developed based on the User Guide. Training will include a PowerPoint presentation based on the bridge tool and user guide. Training will be available in-person and self-administered by download.
