In the effort to promote more cost-effective approaches to replacing and repairing rural bridges without compromising safety, the Soy Transportation Coalition (STC) has released the report, “The Top 20 Innovations for Rural Bridge Replacement and Repair.” In order to select the featured innovative concepts, the STC assembled a group of 13 bridge engineers and experts from the 13 states that comprise the organization. Three engineers served as principal analysts for the project with the remaining 10 engineers or experts serving as advisory committee members. The goal of the principal analysts and advisory committee members was to highlight a relatable number of innovative concepts that (1) will provide initial or life-cycle cost savings, (2) have been validated by a credible engineering entity or organization, and (3) is accessible in a large section of rural America.
