The Franklin Avenue Bridge: Part 2: Analysis, design, and accelerated bridge construction

The Franklin Avenue Bridge is an arch bridge crossing the Mississippi River between Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN. Completed in 1923 and last renovated in 1970, the bridge has been damaged by chloride-related corrosion of the reinforcement and long-term exposure to moisture and freezing-and-thawing cycles. This article, the second of a two-part series on the restoration of the bridge, focuses on the structural analysis and deck replacement using accelerated bridge construction (ABC).
