Shelter In Place Webinar Series

Steel Bridge 7-Part Webinar Series

The SSSBA sponsored a 7-part webinar series on solutions for cost-effective steel bridges from April 7-May 26, 2020. A distinguished panel of industry experts was assembled to present topics essential to the design and installation of short span steel bridges.

The recorded webinar is now available to view on-demand (professional development hours are not included for viewing the recorded session). The SSSBA would like to thank the American Galvanizers Association for hosting the webinar.

The series can be viewed below or through the video page on the SSSBA website.
