MoDOT has selected GBA to participate in the Bridge Engineering Assistance Program, or BEAP as it is more commonly known. This important program provides engineering assistance to local public agencies throughout the state that do not have their own engineering staff to evaluate, prioritize, and develop design solutions for bridge maintenance, rehabilitation, and repair. GBA will be placed on a list of pre-approved BEAP consultants available to provide engineering services for structural analysis and prioritized design of rehab and repair.
Over the years, GBA has worked with MoDOT, KDOT, and with numerous cities and counties to realize savings for their bridge projects. GBA Bridge Group Leader Jim Jarrett, PE, and Bridge Design Engineer Jon Karst, PE, talk about some projects that may have similarities to your projects, with savings that may surprise you!
