The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute's ASPIRE Concrete Bridge Magazine, Winter 2019 issue addresses effective strategies for community engagement on promoting the success of bridge construction projects. The industry article points to how engaging the public can help decision making and funding. In addition, effective communication can help mitigate traffic delays and local impact.
Websites and Social Media are easy ways to communicate with the public. Local communities like to know what is going on, and bridge construction can be an exciting event for many communities, another reason why communication is important.
