Bridges connect communities and are essential to our social fabric but some of them can do more, like support renewable energy strategies, report on their structural health and inspire the next generation of STEM innovators. Bridge construction is expensive and disruptive to the community and the environment. So, we need to maximize the societal benefit of our public investment by asking our bridges to do more jobs. To accomplish this, we need vision and collaboration to push past what we thought was possible for bridge design and construction.
