  • Abstract:
    Precasting of bridge substructure components holds potential for accelerating the construction of bridges,reducing

    impacts to the traveling public on routes adjacent to construction sites, improving bridge durability and hence service

    life, and reducing the environmental impacts that are associated with cast‐in‐place construction operations.Use of

    precast concrete substructures has been limited in the United States; only recently have state departments of

    transportation (DOTs) developed and implemented technologies that speed construction through the use of

    prefabricated columns, cap beams, and footings. In this research,the author gathered relevant information on the use

    of precast substructures by state DOTs, and analyzed existing technologies for appropriateness of use on typical

    bridges within Arizona.Drawing from the collected literature,the author makes recommendations for implementing

    precast substructures.
