Following Florida Bridge Collapse Construction Method in Question

Accelerated Bridge Construction is a construction method developed by a group of bridge engineering experts who discovered in 2010 that America’s bridges were crumbling and a lot more of them needed to be built, and fast.

This method which involves building the bridge off-site and then moving it to its final location in one piece, minimises costs and disruptions, but is now under investigation following the collapse of a bridge in Florida.

The bridge was being constructed using the Accelerated Bridge Construction method when it collapsed, killing 6 people and injuring 9 others.

While other bridges in different parts of the country have been constructed successfully using this technique, an investigation will determine whether it played a role in this particular collapse.
