The National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA) will be hosting a workshop on the basics of steel bridge design and fabrication on April 21 at the 2020 World Steel Bridge Symposium (WSBS) in Atlanta. From calculating loads to best practices for detailing, this workshop aims to take attendees through the complete design of a 3-span continuous plate girder bridge. 

Whether you are a novice just starting out or an expert in need of a refresher, this workshop will offer something for all levels of experience. Additionally, attendees from federal and state transportation departments will be eligible for complimentary registration and travel expense reimbursement.
