Abstract

The goal of this MQP was to analyze different possible replacement strategies for a specific highway bridge to design the most easily implementable and efficient replacement. Design of the bridge elements was completed in accordance with the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Specification and was aided by the use of software. The final presentation included a structural design of the selected superstructure and substructure with accompanying construction and traffic planning, as well as a cost estimate of direct and indirect costs.
