Super Tech ‘Super’ Structures

Better Roads Magazine

New technologies – both active and passive, mechanical and electronic, as-built or retrofitted – are revolutionizing how bridge superstructures are designed, built, protected and maintained.

Bridges have almost nothing in common with roadways, except they abut each other, are used by vehicles, and have the same ownership. It’s the same with conventional bridge superstructures as opposed to bridge piers and footings; they are joined to each other but largely function independently, with their own design, maintenance and rehab needs.
