2307 A Systems Approach for Design, Construction, and Maintenance of Bridges and Adjacent Roadways

Previous research projects funded by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and other agencies have revealed that many problems faced by bridges, such as expansion joints closing, are related to how the interfaces between a bridge and the adjacent roadway are designed, constructed, and maintained. The current design practice views the bridge and the adjacent roadway as separate components. Therefore, a systems-based approach is needed that considers the important interactions of the bridge and adjacent roadways in a holistic manner. The proposed research will utilize the knowledge gained from the previous studies and develop implementable strategies for improving design, construction, and maintenance of bridges and adjacent roadways.
