Slide-in bridge construction (SIBC) is one of several accelerated bridge construction (ABC) technologies being advanced by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Compared to more traditional methods of bridge construction, and due to its shorter work zone durations and reduced impacts on traffic, SIBC (like other ABC technologies) can:

  • Increase safety for workers
  • Enhance mobility
  • Reduce environmental impacts

    The goal of the course is to provide various key audiences with the essential information on slide-in bridge construction. Topics discussed in the workshop include:

  • Definition of SIBC
  • Benefits
  • Challenges
  • Costs
  • Decision Making (when and where to use ABC and which type of ABC to use)
  • Delivery Methods/Contracting
  • Planning
  • Design and Detailing
  • Hardware and Equipment
  • Submittals
  • Media/Public Relations
  • Case Studies
