Highlights from the 11th International Bridge and Structures Management Conference: Putting Bridge Management into Practice

This presentation summarizes several highlights from the 11th International Bridge and Structures Management Conference and observations about putting bridge management into practice. For those who attended the conference there was general agreement that they found the following: a strong and diverse program; an exceptional support team assisting attendees; many opportunities to learn from others; and an attentive and engaged audience that asked questions of the speakers and took the opportunity to exchange ideas. The presentation is organized around the six theme areas: responses to legislation, use of technology, inadequate funding, increased emphasis on preservation, increased focus on risk, and staffing and workforce development needs. For each area, the author highlights the practices that were discussed at the conference and the challenges that still need to be addressed.
