The SSSBA and several industry partners are building a first-of-its-kind demonstration bridge in Buchanan County, Iowa. This blog is tracking the bridge from fabrication through ribbon cutting. The bridge design was created using eSPAN140. the free web-based design tool developed by the SSSBA to provide a more cost-effective manner to quickly design short span steel bridges. (See www.eSPAN140.com to learn more about the design tool). A live webcam was put into place at the construction site and you can check out the progress in real time on this blog. If you have questions about the eSPAN140 demonstration project in Iowa, contact Dan Snyder at dsnyder@steel.org.
