Sixth road project bridge component seismic retrofit and replacement program for 400 bridges in Mindanao and Luzon

The primary objectives of the Sixth Road Project Bridge Component, centered in Mindanao and Luzon, are to: inspect and determine requirements for repair, replacement or seismic upgrading and prioritization of modifications for approximately 412 bridges; upgrade seismic resistance of the highest priority bridges, approximately 270 existing bridges, to acceptable levels; totally replace approximately 68 badly deteriorated bridges using the new DPWH Standard Bridge Designs; and provide for technology transfer to local consultants and the DPWH to allow for their future participation in seismic upgrading projects in other areas of the Philippines. This paper will: provide an overview of the Sixth Road Project Bridge Component; identify the key seismic deficiencies in various common bridge structures; and discuss the techniques employed in seismic upgrading of bridges as applied on the Sixth Road Project Bridge Component.
