Performance of ABC Bridges in Utah
by Carmen Swanwick P.E., Chief Structural Engineer, Utah Department of Transportation. How do the differences between traditional bridges and ABC bridges affect performance? The Utah Department of Transportation is in a good position to answer that question. UDOT has constructed more than a hundred ABC bridges and has recently completed an inspection of those bridges.
The ABC-UTC has assembled an experienced, knowledgeable, and engaged group of bridge academics and engineers who collectively will provide the transportation industry with the tools needed to effectively and economically utilize the principles of ABC to enhance mobility, and safety and produce safe, environmentally friendly, long-lasting bridges.
