Compilation of Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) Bridges

Development of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) technologies has been occurring across the country, many times in isolation. Although the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and others have worked to facilitate communication between these efforts, there was not a comprehensive resource to aid designers in selecting an appropriate technology for a particular project. The work of this project expanded and enhanced the existing FHWA ABC project database resources. The main objective of the project was to compile information on existing ABC technologies and present the information in a manner useful to designers. The compilation includes all bridge types constructed of any material using ABC. Alternatives and objective information is provided, allowing the end user to make informed decisions regarding the suitability of particular technologies in particular circumstances.
