Bridge owners are interested in scaling the benefits of digital delivery across their agencies’ programs. The application of BIM to infrastructure is growing in prominence nationally and internationally. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern that will discuss how to use BIM to deliver infrastructure projects using digital delivery.

The presenters will also build upon previous efforts and ongoing industry research on multiple fronts to further implement digital delivery in bridge design, construction, fabrication, and asset management.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Visualization in Transportation and General Structures.
