(SR300) Work Zone Webinar (Accelerated Construction)
5/30/2013 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST
Accelerated road work ("Get-in, Get-out, Stay-out") involves the use of several strategies, independently or in combination, during project planning, design, contracting, and implementation to speed up projects and can result in a significant reduction in work zone safety and mobility impacts. FHWA will give a national overview presentation followed by State presentations from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the Illinois Tollway. Neil Boudreau of the Massachusetts DOT will talk about the use of accelerated construction on the FAST 14 project, in which 14 bridges in Medford, MA were replaced in just 10 weekends between June and August, 2011. Steve Gillen of the Illinois Tollway will speak about precast panels for patching and reconstruction.
