Choosing accelerated bridge construction technologies can reduce the time bridges are closed for construction, thus reducing or eliminating the need for long term detours. The Innovative Bridge Designs for Rapid Renewal (R04) product includes standard design plans for foundation systems and substructure and superstructure systems, subsystems, and components that can be installed quickly with minimal traffic disruptions.
