Rebuilding Bridges – Turning an Urban Disaster Into an Infrastructure Success Story
When: 1:00pm ET, Thursday, May 16, 2019
Where: Via webinar
On March 30, 2017 a fire under the I-85 bridge in the City of Atlanta caused the interstate bridge to collapse. Following the collapse, the Governor announced a State of Emergency, and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) began the recovery process with $10 million authorized from FHWA as emergency relief funds. Six weeks and $16.6 million dollars later, the bridge re-opened for the approximately 243,000 daily weekday trips.
In this webinar, GDOT’s Chief Engineer, Meg Pirkle, will discuss the contracting and implementation process of this speedy project delivery of a major urban highway with local and national economy implications.
