Government agencies are under pressure to optimize limited resources while also responding to increasing demands for better performance. Across the country, deficient bridges are a growing problem. The U.S. has 614,387 bridges, almost four in 10 of which are 50 years or older. More than 54,000 bridges of those bridges need to be repaired or replaced. These factors earned U.S. bridges a C+ score on the ASCE’s most recent infrastructure report card. While the private sector has overcome similar pressures with building information modeling (BIM), the public sector is working toward its own digital transformation and exploring the opportunities that come with technology in bridge design, construction, and asset management."
