Need a Bridge Fast? Better Call Steel! [B16]

If you're looking for versatility under tight time constraints, steel can come to the rescue!

We'll examine real-life projects that highlight what steel can do:

  • The NSBA Prize Bridge Award-winning Pfieffer Canyon Bridge saved the day when a mudslide destroyed an existing bridge, isolating a Big Sur community that had to bring food and fuel in via helicopter before the new bridge opened.
  • Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) techniques led to speedy fabrication and installation of the Keller Ferry Floating Terminal in Washington.
  • Temporary modular constructed trusses played a pivotal role in the Spiketon and San Poil Bridge Replacement projects in Washington.
