Rhode Island accelerates bridge projects with GRS

News | August 10, 2016 | By:

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is using accelerated bridge construction techniques—including geosynthetic reinforced soil (GRS)—to replace the East Shore Expressway and McCormick Quarry bridges in East Providence, R.I.

The state agency said that it will cut project construction time and traffic delays by building geosynthetic reinforced soil abutments and using self-propelled modular transporters to install new superstructures.
