April 24, 2007 in Columbus, OhioODOT Central Office Auditorium 1980 W. Broad St.
The upgrading of Ohio’s urban freeway system often requires the placement of bridges on very complex geometrical alignments including large skews. Without proper planning and design, the construction of bridges on these complex alignments becomes increasingly difficult and may even result in structural deficiencies. This seminar will present analysis, design, detailing and construction practices for highly skewed bridges.
