Education Session #10: Seismic Evaluation of Typical IDOT Bridges using Displacement Based Principles and IDOT Policy Seismic Update
This presentation will highlight displacement seismic design methods used to assess five existing bridges designed using forces-based methods with the intention to highlight differences in force based and displacement based procedures along with considerations for policy implementations into IDOT Standards.
Mark Shaffer, P.E., S.E., and Johann Aakre, P.E., S.E., IDOT/MBI
Education Session #11: Infusing a New Life to the Pulaski Skyway
Case study for the temporary support of a large, complex steel truss for the purposes of replacing pier columns. Goal was a safe transfer of the structure from its supports, permanent-temporary-permanent, while minimizing traffic disruption. Presentation will discuss design considerations, analysis techniques and Structural Health Monitoring of the structure during the construction.

Pearl Session #4: Highway Traffic Loading – AASHTO Compared to Other Codes of Practice
This paper compares the requirements of – and load effects arising from – AASHTO LRFD with other national Codes including Canada, China, Australia and the Eurocode, also considering selected State Bridge Design Manual implementations.

Education Session #12: Design of the CTA Red-Purple Bypass
The new CTA Red-Purple Bypass structure, nicknamed the “Flyover”, will eliminate a four-track intersection by carrying the northbound Brown Line trains up and over Red/Purple line tracks just north of Belmont station. In this presentation, the design team shares how specific details in the RPB Flyover were focused on ensuring the rideability of the CTA trains, as well as the long-term serviceability of the structure under train loading.
