Bill McEleney, director of the National Steel Bridge Alliance, will be presenting a free webinar, titled “ABC Short-Span Low-Volume Bridge Types & Lessons Learned – Part 1: Steel,” next Thursday, July 26, as part of a three-part series hosted by the Accelerated Bridge Construction Center at Florida International University (FIU).
The webinar runs 1-2 p.m. EDT. To register, go to www.abc.fiu.edu. Attendees can also earn 1 PDH credit.
Across the country, the use of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) has proven beneficial for short- and long-span bridge projects during which traffic flow needs to be maintained. McEleney’s presentation is the first in a series of three industry presentations on lessons learned from accelerated short-span bridge construction projects with low-volume traffic. He’ll discuss steel solutions that meet the need to replace single- and multi-span bridges with total bridge lengths ranging from 20 ft to 140 ft, in a prefabricated and accelerated manner.
The presentation will also cover details on various steel ABC projects and focus on ways to further improve the accelerated construction of steel bridges. A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation.
