About the research


With the assistance of the Iowa DOT and Iowa State Bridge Engineering Center (BEC), Madison County will construct a single span bridge using rapid construction techniques. The BEC will conduct field monitoring on the bridge to help assess the behavior of individual elements during construction, the long-term performance of the individual components, and long-term performance and overall behavior of the completed bridge.
