Abstract

The Quaboag River Bridge located in Brookfield, MA is to be replaced through the Accelerated Bridge Program. In this Major Qualifying Project, alternative designs for the Quaboag River Bridge were investigated and evaluated based on a set of established criteria. As a result of the evaluation process a prestressed concrete, spread box girder design was created based on AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. The proposed design includes a completed superstructure, substructure, 3D model and life-cycle cost analysis.
