Bridge Engineering Program Organization

The Bridge Engineering Program at FIU is tackling one of our nation?s major transportation issues. There are more than 607,000 bridges in the U.S. and about 25% of them need to be replaced or retrofitted. With more than 200 million trips a day over these substandard bridges, the potential for tragedy from a bridge collapse is great. Public safety and mobility considerations demands replacing or retrofitting these substandard bridges using new and advanced technologies. FIU?s Bridge Engineering Program has a national and international reputation for tackling challenging bridge engineering problems.
