On August 13th, 6 producers from 4 PCI regions met in Little Rock, AR to help engineers from the DOT Bridge Department learn more about precast/prestressed bridge products. Leading the instruction was Dave Tomley P.E., Thompson Engineering, Chair of PCI Gulf South’s Transportation Committee. Attendees were exposed to such topics as basic girder design, lateral stability, standard precast connections, girder camber, new and innovative technologies and PCI’s Body of Knowledge. There were productive conversations between producer/designers and an open discussion on producer capabilities ensued. As a testament to what can be accomplished when multiple regions of PCI collaborate to help the design community, nothing but positive reviews and gratitude came from the DOT personnel. We look forward to more collaboration and helping the DOT’s.
