Summary: For this project, ADOT&PF is planning to realign the Glenn Highway between MP 53 and MP 56. A bridge type study was conducted, and the following design alternatives were evaluated:

  • Precast, prestressed concrete decked bulb-tee;
  • Steel plate girder with concrete deck;
  • Trapezoidal steel box girder with concrete deck; and
  • Cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete box girder.

Each alternative was evaluated for estimated cost, design criteria satisfaction, and construction methodology to determine the most feasible bridge type for this project.
