Innovative Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Structures for Wildlife Crossings
Started: April, 2020 End Date: October, 2021 Project ID #4W8317 Status: Ongoing
The project is organized into four tasks: 1) identify and select FRP manufacturers and materials that will contribute to efficient and cost-effective bridge structures; 2) investigate and perform a preliminary design of up to three different wildlife overpass structures using different FRP applications and assure they can meet Caltrans’ structural specifications and address wildlife’s needs; 3) evaluate the implementation of the selected FRP wildlife overpass structure via cost-benefit, construction and life-cycle metrics; and, 4) disseminate the results, recommendations and conclusions of the investigation.
