NCHRP Synthesis 20-05/Topic 18-03 [Final (Synthesis)]

Design and Construction of Bridge Approaches
[ NCHRP 20-05 (Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices) ]

  Project Data

This synthesis will be of interest to geotechnical, bridge construction, and maintenance engineers and others interested in design, construction, and maintenance of embankment approaches to bridge abutments. Information is provided on available techniques to minimize problems associated with the bump at the end of the bridge. The transition from a roadway to a bridge structure entails design, construction, and maintenance problems. This report of the Transportation Research Board describes those problems as well as the many solutions that are applicable to specific situations.   The report for this topic can be purchased at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=3398
