Abstract

This project focused on the redesign of a typical two lane highway overpass. The basis of the design followed AASHTO specifications and used the LRFD method. To complement our hand calculations, we used Risa-2D to calculate live and dead loads. Along with designing the bridge, we performed a life-cycle cost analysis which included environmental impact, construction practices, and material selection.
