Accelerated Bridge Construction Example Bridges

Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) uses innovative planning, design, materials, and methods to reduce the onsite construction time that occurs when building new bridges or replacing and rehabilitating existing bridges.

Find out how the Federal Highway Administration uses ABC to help states build bridges faster while minimizing—or even eliminating—traffic jams, detours and delays.
