Guide Specifications for Design and Construction of Segmental Concrete Bridges (1989 Edition)

This document contains guidelines for the design and construction of segmental concrete bridges.  The guidelines are comprehensive in nature and embody several new concepts which are significant departures from previous design and construction provisions.  They are formulated and based on both observed performance of bridges of this type and on recent research conducted in the United States and abroad.

This publication is only available to ASBI members and may be downloaded through the Members Only section.

No copies of the specification will be sold commercially, disseminated elsewhere in print or online, modified, or used to create derivative documents.  Anyone seeking to duplicate the document in part or in its entirety will need to contact AASHTO to request such permission.
