“Steel Going Strong” is the theme of the 2007 World Steel Bridge Symposium, to take place December 4–7, 2007 in New Orleans.


The WSBS gathers steel bridge owners, designers, and contractors from around the world to discuss all aspects of steel bridge design and construction. The exhibit hall is full of products and services to advance the state-of-the-art of the steel bridge industry. WSBS attendees come to the symposium to learn about the latest innovations in steel bridges.


Focus areas of the symposium’s many sessions include, but are not be limited to: short span bridges; intermediate span bridges; case studies featuring the use of high-performance steel; restoration, rehabilitation, and reuse; fabrication, construction, and erection; innovative bridge designs; and inspection and maintenance. In addition, this year’s program features half-day workshops on AISC Certification and quality management, as well as pre-conference workshops on prefabricated bridge elements and systems and accelerated construction technologies.


The highlight of this year’s symposium banquet will be the presentation of the 2007 Prize Bridge Awards.
