Accelerated bridge construction demo, replacement over I-95 done in 2 weeks

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont is crediting the Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) method with saving up to two years on the replacement of a bridge section over Interstate 95 in Stamford, Connecticut. ABC has become a way for state DOTs to replace aging bridge infrastructure with minimal traffic detours during construction. It is also recognized by many as a safer way to build the bridge structures. HNTB’s Bala Sivakumar told Construction Dive last year that building according to ABC methods keep workers closer to the ground instead of tying rebar or pouring concrete at 50 feet to 100 feet above the flow of traffic.
