Join us for the second installment of NPCA’s 2021 Specifier Webinar Series and learn about the use of precast elements for accelerated bridge construction (ABC). Eligible attendees will earn 1.5 PDHs for attending this FREE webinar.


Webinar Description: 

Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) has been championed by the Federal Highway Administration through a variety of programs such as Everyday Counts and Highways for Life. Additionally, there have been many university research projects conducted to verify best design and construction practices. Consequently, the use of ABC has gained wide acceptance among Departments of Transportation (DOTs) across North America. Virtually all states and provinces are using ABC with precast concrete. This webinar will focus on the use of precast concrete elements for accelerated bridge construction. The basis of this session will be the 2018 AASHTO LRFD Guide Specifications for Accelerated Bridge Construction.
