A New Solution for Bridge Construction: GRS-IBS (1 LU | HSW)
August 11, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
With the nation’s roadway infrastructure continuing to deteriorate, there is more demand than ever for cost-effective road and bridge construction methods.
Join experts from Oldcastle APG to explore one of the most innovative solutions available today: geosynthetic reinforced soil-integrated bridge systems, or GRS-IBS.
This course introduces the GRS-IBS solution that eliminates driven piles and poured concrete by building the bridge structure direly on a reinforced subsoil mass using similar methods as segmental retaining walls (SRW), a new technique that promises to revolutionize the speed and cost efficiency of bridge construction.
