Educational Events and Resources for Professionals
Short span bridges provide vital links in the nation’s infrastructure network. Yet, nearly a quarter of these bridges are classified as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. This situation presents a significant challenge for cash-strapped state and local governments.
The steel industry has developed technological and design innovations for bridges under 140 feet that save significant time and costs for county and state bridge officials. The Short Span Steel Bridge Alliance offers a variety of workshops, conference presentations, webinars, and on-demand lectures that covers safe and cost-effective design, detail, fabrication, and installation of short span steel bridges.
Over the past 10-years, over 5,000 bridge owners and designers have learned about the cost and time advantages of short span steel bridges in SSSBA workshops and conferences throughout North America.
