Albano, Leonard D.
The purpose of this project was to provide a structural design recommendation for a bridge replacement in Taunton, MA. The team evaluated the current conditions, and presented a bridge layout that met MassDOT, FHWA, and AASHTO requirements. Additionally, the group provided a cost estimate, traffic management plan and construction staging schedule as a supplement to the design. In the end, the team determined that a one-span steel bridge using slide-in bridge construction methods was cost-effective and best satisfied project requirements.
