TRS: Innovative Bridge Construction

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  07/16/2012


Minnesota counties have been actively implementing new design and construction techniques for multiple projects in recent years. In June of 2011, the Local Road Research Board (LRRB) discussed and approved preparing a synthesis report to document several of these projects. Scanning tours have previously been conducted to investigate bridge design and construction methods used in other states. Staff from the MnDOT State Aid Office and the Bridge State Aid Unit, representatives from the Minnesota County Engineers Association, and FHWA have participated in the scans. Several of the technologies identified during these scans have since been applied to local bridge construction on Minnesota projects, and are included in this synthesis.
