This web site is devoted to information about the Innovative Bridge Research and Construction (IBRC) Program. IBRC is an initiative by the Federal Highway Administration to provide direction and funding to help state, county and local bridge owners incorporate innovative materials and materials technologies in their bridge projects. The intent of the program is to reduce congestion associated with bridge construction and maintenance projects, to increase productivity by lowering the life-cycle costs of bridges, to keep Americans and America’s commerce moving, and to enhance safety.
The IBRC site is designed as a Community of Practice. This means that you can find information about the program and funding levels, access solicitation packages, review previous and currently funded projects, study the legislative intent, ask questions or seek information from experts in bridges and high-performance materials, and receive information.
The Innovative Bridge Research and Construction Program is administered by the Office of Bridge Technology, Infrastructure Core Business Unit, of the Federal Highway Administration. Contact:
