SPR 2013 Prime KTC: Historic Truss bridge Assessment

  • Grossardt, Theodore (PI)

Grants and Contracts Details


The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet desires to make more consistent and efficient decisions regarding the rehabilitation or replacement of truss bridges in the state. There are currently approximately 93 such bridges remaining in the state, and the Cabinet lacks good information about the relative number, type, and condition of the various types of truss bridges. Without having the necessary information, and a process for evaluating them, the Cabinet risks destroying historically valuable bridges and/or expending considerable resources to rehabilitate a structure with little historic value. This project will produce a method and data to support sorting among the remaining bridges to identify which ones to rehabilitate.
