1 Work Zone Safety Using Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) Rukhsana Lindsey, UDOT Presented by Jim McMinimee Principal Engineer, Applied Research Associates

2 Utah Small State 2.5 M people $350 M Federal Program DOT 1650 employees Currently 6% unemployment statewide Big Transportation Program 250+ projects $3+ B under construction

3 Our Need for Speed Customer driven culture Willing to take risks Implement new technologies: Accelerated Bridge Construction Accelerate Pavement Construction Diverging Diamond Interchanges Increased partnerships

4 Department Themes Accelerate Delivery Decrease and Minimize Detours or Delays Encourage Innovation that speeds project or provides value Get a Good Price Balance of good price vs other themes

5 New Business Model Societal Costs Minimized Societal cost model includes safety costs Lowest Construction CostLowest Project Cost Public Praise Political Capital

7 I-15 Design Build a Case Study in Project Acceleration I-15 Design Build – SEP 14 $1.6 B Contract 17 Miles, 130 Bridges, 7 Urban/3 Interstate Interchanges 10 Year Maintenance Period Drivers for Project Public Support – 4 Years Instead of 9 Years 2002 Winter Olympics I – 15 Incentives Quality, Project Management, MOT, Early Completion Potential $50M Post Mortem User Cost Study UofU Dr Martin USER COSTS SAVED > $500M Saved estimated accidents over Traditional 14 Lives Saved

8 What is ABC? Innovative methods to decrease bridge construction time Build elements offsite/outside traffic area Transport to site and install rapidly

9 Benefits of ABC Minimized traffic disruption – from months to days Improved work zone safety – improved worker safety Improved product quality – controlled environment, cure times, easier access, etc.

10 Innovative Technology First implementation costs more Potential for new methods to cost less Promise of time savings Positive cost-benefit ratios Promise of cost savings

11 Utah Precast Deck Panel Projects

12 Family of Innovative ABC Elements and Methods Precast Concrete Elements Modular Construction Structure Placement Methods Innovative Accelerated Bridge Construction Accelerated Geotech Work Fast Track Contracting

13 Benefits of ABC Minimizes traffic disruption from months to days Improves work zone and worker safety User savings Improves product quality Controlled environment Cure times Easier access

14 Utah ABC Costs 18 projects $45M

24 Projects Echo Canyon Bridge; Slide-in

25 UDOT Research Study Reviewing status of ABC Program 161 ABC projects Started with SPMT projects

26 18 Accelerated Bridge Projects- SPMTs Traffic impacts Closures and Detours of 2-3 days Channelizing work zones of usual durations Zero crashes within work zone(!) Bridge built away from traffic with better worker safety and productivity. One statistical surprise – Slightly more accidents after construction over. Preliminary Results

27 Public Support for ABC Public Overall Satisfaction With Project Results (1 = not satisfied, 7 = very satisfied)
