Education Session #6: MASH TL-5 Testing of Six-Foot Tall Barriers with a Noise Abatement Wall
Recently crash test 6-foot constant slope barrier and F-shape barrier with noise abatement walls attached. The crash test included MASH TL-5 tests 5-10 (1100C Test Vehicle), 5-11 (2270P Test Vehicle) and 5-12 (3+6000V Test Vehicle). The assessment of each of the crash tests by Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) indicates that the Illinois Tollway Constant Slope Barrier and F-shape barrier passed the MASH evaluation criteria.

Education Session #7: I-480 Valley View Bridge Structural Steel Erection Analysis
The I-480 Valley View Bridge Project includes construction of a new high-level median bridge situated between an existing pair of bridges carrying eastbound and westbound I-480 over the Cuyahoga River Valley near Cleveland, Ohio. The presentation will include a project overview and discussion of structural steel erection for the new bridge using overhead gantries, with an emphasis on the structural modeling and analysis of the existing eastbound and westbound bridge structural steel to confirm the feasibility and adequacy of the existing structures to support the steel erection loads.

Education Session #8: Enhancing Bridge Design with Architectural Lighting
The rapid advancement in technology impacts several facets of bridge design. A specific impact in the last few years that has reached new levels not imagined 10 years ago is architectural lighting. Bridges have been renown for the structural and architectural significance for ages. This significance has transcended over the last few years to include a specific focus on architectural lighting and its importance. The lighting on bridges enhances the impact and brings forth another dimension not visualized during the daytime.

Pearl #2: Roselle Road a Simple, Aesthetically Pleasing Pedestrian Bridge
The project purpose is to improve pedestrian and bicycle accessibility along a heavily trafficked corridor at the north end of Schaumburg. Roselle Road, which carries over 33,000 vehicles per day in this location, had no means for pedestrians to get from the heavily residential area south of I-90 to the Paul Douglas Forest Preserve north of I-90 and Central Road. Given the high visibility of this crossing, the Village elected to emphasize the aesthetics of the bridge from a motorist and pedestrian perspective. To enhance the user’s experience the 5-span, 750’ long bridge features a gently S-shaped horizontal alignment with radii of 1,500’ and 1,075’. To cross over Central Road and a Tributary of Salt Creek, the bridge was scoped as 5 spans of 750’ total length.
