A Technical Workshop, sponsored by ACMA and the Transportation Structures Council, will be featured at the International Bridge Conference on June 7, 2017 at the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center in National Harbor, MD.  The Workshop – FRP Composites Impact to Sustainable Design of Concrete Bridges and Accelerated Bridge Construction will showcase advancements in design and specification of FRP products to build steel free concrete structures and retrofit/rehabilitate aging bridges. Presentations include the first-ever use of FRP rebar in a cable-stayed bridge and new techniques for accelerated bridge construction and rapid composites deck replacement. A 20-year durability performance study will demonstrate sustainable construction techniques and the viability of bridge protection systems. Assistance on writing special provisions to utilize FRP using industry guidelines will conclude the workshop.
