Lrfd implementation prepare6 l.jpg
LRFD ImplementationPREPARE!

  • LRFD team will be generating complete design computations on 2 bridges

    • One continuous steel bridge

    • One continuous P/S bulb tee Bridge

  • During the design process, team members will be reviewing all parts of the puzzle that make up the contract drawings and specifications

  • Train for Construction

    • Structure of this training not determined, because extent of impact has not been determined.

    • New specifications explicitly place responsibility for some items on contractor and outline specific requirements for submittal it is likely that we will see more P.E. stamped submittals for things like erection, deck placement, shipping. Learning what is required will be part of training at some point.

    • Consultants, Contractors, VTCA, etc. will be kept abreast of developments
