Topic: The 100 Year Bridge

When: Thursday May 19, 2016 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT


Presidential Banquet Center
4548 Presidential Way
Kettering, OH 45429

Speakers: Dan Springer and Amy Moore, LJB Inc 

You have likely seen the ongoing media coverage about our nation’s crumbling infrastructure. But, what if bridges could last 100 years – long enough for your great, great grandchildren to use? This session covers the unique management and design challenges for the first ODOT project that utilizes long-lasting carbon fiber prestressing strands. For this pilot project, LJB designed the replacement of two existing multi-span prestressed concrete box beam bridges. One of the bridges will be constructed using conventional materials, while the other bridge will use carbon fiber (CFCC – Tokyo Rope) strands and stainless steel reinforcing in the superstructure. The bridge structures are similar enough to allow for comparison of the long-term sustainability of using different types of material. The presenters-including the project manager and lead bridge designer-will review the materials, challenges and long-term impacts of this unique bridge project that could have long-lasting effects on the future of bridge design.

Speaker Bios:
Dan Springer is a project manager and senior structural engineer with LJB who has 16 years of experience and specializes in bridge design and inspection. He is a dually certified professional engineer and project management professional. Dan has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in civil engineering with a focus in structures from the University of Toledo. His expertise includes designing, preparing plans and checking designs for various bridges in the short- to intermediate-span range. Dan has experience with complex interstate, county and municipal bridges as well as pedestrian bridges. He has worked with a variety of bridge types including steel beams, pre-stressed concrete box beams, I-beams, cast-in-place concrete, box culverts and arch structures.
