SPR-4843: Advancing Accelerated Bridge Construction and Fabrication in Indiana

The proposed research aims to increase the use of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) and accelerated bridge fabrication (ABF) in Indiana as these technologies have the potential to address INDOT needs related to improving construction time (both onsite construction time and total project delivery time), project cost, and work zone safety (for both the traveling public and construction workers). The focus would be on the scoping stage, with the goal of triggering which projects are candidates for ABC or ABF early in the process. Research will culminate in guidelines and recommendations for implementing ABC/ABF in Indiana.
