FREE: Accelerated Bridge Construction

Date: September 29, 2009
Location:East Montpelier, Vermont

The intent of the US 2 project is to reduce a bridge to its most basic components and to incorporate high quality, durable materials in construction. This design approach will maximize the life of the bridge and provide a structure that is virtually maintenance free. By eliminating the membrane and pavement and by moving traffic (840 ADT) on a two way temporary bridge during construction, VTrans will be able to build the new bridge in a shorter time frame than through a traditional approach and reduce disruptions and impacts to the traveling public.
