Innovations Slide into Place in New York State

In April 2011, after learning about the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Project R04 on innovative bridge designs for rapid renewal, the New York State Department of Transportation gained approval for a project on Interstate 84 (I-84) in the Hudson Valley Region, for a rapid renewal by lateral slide. After approval for the SHRP 2 project, the New York State DOT applied for a Federal Highway Administration Highways for Life grant, receiving approval for $2.1 million in July 2011. This allowed New York State DOT to leverage support for innovative bridge design. This article discusses the bridge replacement project.
