Using the latest Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) practices, a $39.5-million project is under construction to connect the north and south sides of the highway near the old Dallas Cowboy stadium, the State Highway 114 Irving Signature Bridge. The project consists of five bridges that will combine to appear as one structure. The two pedestrian bridges were originally designed as cast-in-place (CIP) post-tensioned continuous box girders. The ABC implementation is based on the usage of prefabrication techniques in conjunction with SPMT Gantry transporters and an adjacent laydown yard. This technique significantly reduces the closure of the main and HOV lanes on this major Dallas thoroughfare from four (4) continuous months to just two (2) weekends night-time to install the four post-tensioned precast segments weight around 700 Ton each. the project utilized Bridge Information Modeling (BrIM) techniques combining Autodesk Revit ® and Midas Civil® to analyze, design, and develop the construction documents.
