Abstract

The states which use integral abutments in bridge design and the District Construction Office of the FHWA, Region 15, were surveyed to determine their current thinking and practice in integral abutment design. In Chapter 2 various policies are discussed for representive highway departments, and a summary of current practice by all the states and the FHWA is given in the Appendix. For most states the length limitations for integral abutment bridges have been set on the basis of past experience and have been increasing over the years as a result of satisfactory performance in actual installations. There is not a common set of design details used to implement integral abutment bridges.
