Abstract

Currently, there is only one supplier for the double tee bridge girder system in South Dakota. Alternative precast concrete and other type bridge systems may prove to provide potential options for local governments when making a bridge type selection based on performance and cost. Therefore, a study is needed to identify potential alternative systems and assess the construction feasibility, structural performance, and durability of those systems that have potential for implementation in South Dakota.
