Albano, Leonard D.
Based on inspection reports provided by MassHighway, the Belmont Street/Route 9 Bridge has three bridge components deemed deficient . The deck slab, girders, and columns were re-designed using AASHTO specifications and LRFD design. Additionally, sustainable bridge design aspects were examined including alternative building materials, maintenance protection, stormwater management, and transportation and urban planning. Lastly, a life-cycle cost analysis considering the re-designed bridge components and maintenance was conducted and a sustainable bridge guideline for future bridge design projects was created.
