Beardstown Bridge
The Beardstown Bridge is a two-lane bridge that carries U.S. Route 67 (US 67) and Illinois Route 100 (IL 100) across the Illinois River
Illinois River
between Schuyler County, Illinois
Schuyler County, Illinois
and the city of Beardstown, Cass County, Illinois.[2] The bridge was built in 1955 and rehabilitated in 1985.[1][2] It is the northernmost and furthest upstream of the three Illinois River

crossings used by IL 100, with the other two being at Florence and Hardin. The bridge is appraised as structurally deficient, with a sufficiency rating of 40.2 out of 100 during its 2000 and 2010 inspections.[1][2] The IDOT estimates that it would cost $173 million to construct a replacement bridge and approach roads. A new bridge is part of the plans for a U.S

Geographic Coordinate System
A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system used in geography that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols.[n 1] The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position, and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position

Annual Average Daily Traffic
Annual average daily traffic, abbreviated AADT, is a measure used primarily in transportation planning and transportation engineering. Traditionally, it is the total volume of vehicle traffic of a highway or road for a year divided by 365 days. AADT is a useful and simple measurement of how busy the road is. Newer advances from traffic data providers are now providing AADT by side of the road, by day of week and by time of day.Contents1 Uses 2 Data collection 3 Annual Average Weekday Traffic (AAWT) 4 Average summer daily traffic 5 Average Daily Traffic 6 References 7 External linksUses[edit] Highway
Highway
401 in Ontario, Canada, has an AADT of over 400,000 in some sections of Toronto.[1]One of the most important uses of AADT is for determining funding for the maintenance and improvement of highways. In the United States the amount of federal funding a state will receive is related to the total traffic measured across its highway network

National Bridge Inventory
The National Bridge
Bridge
Inventory (NBI) is a database, compiled by the Federal Highway Administration, with information on all bridges and tunnels in the United States
United States
that have roads passing above or below. This is similar to the grade crossing identifier number database compiled by the Federal Railroad Administration which identifies all railroad crossings. This bridge information includes the design of the bridge and the dimensions of the usable portion. The data is often used to analyze bridges and judge their conditions. The inventory is developed with the purpose of having a unified database for bridges to ensure the safety of the traveling public as required by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1968.[1] It includes identification information, bridge types and specifications, operational conditions, bridge data including geometric data and functional description, and inspection data

Hardin Bridge
The Hardin Bridge is a bridge in Hardin, Illinois
Hardin, Illinois
that carries Illinois Route 16 and Illinois Route 100 across the Illinois River. The bridge is the southernmost bridge on the river. It is also one of three crossings used by IL 100, the other two being in Florence and Beardstown. The bridge's western abutment is the western terminus of IL 16. It was built in 1930 and rehabilitated in 2003-04. External links[edit] Hardin Bridge at Bridgehunter.com Video of Bridge Lowering at YouTube.comThis article about a bridge in Illinois is a stub

Structure Gauge
The structure gauge, also called the minimum clearance outline, is the minimum height and width of tunnels and bridges as well as the minimum height and width of the doors that allow a rail siding access into a warehouse. In addition, the term may apply to the minimum distance to railway platforms (passenger or freight), buildings, electrical equipment boxes, railway signal equipment, third rails or to supports for overhead lines from the track. The width of a narrow cut can also affect the maximum loading gauge. The difference between the structure gauge and the loading gauge is called the "clearance"

Through Truss
A truss bridge is a bridge whose load-bearing superstructure is composed of a truss, a structure of connected elements usually forming triangular units. The connected elements (typically straight) may be stressed from tension, compression, or sometimes both in response to dynamic loads. Truss
Truss
bridges are one of the oldest types of modern bridges. The basic types of truss bridges shown in this article have simple designs which could be easily analyzed by 19th and early 20th-century engineers

Warren truss
consists of longitudinal members joined only by angled cross-members, forming alternately inverted equilateral triangle-shaped spaces along its length. This gives a pure truss: each individual strut, beam, or tie is only subject to tension or compression forces, there are no bending or torsional forces on them. Loads on the diagonals alternate between compression and tension (approaching the centre), with no vertical elements, while elements near the centre must support both tension and compression in response to live loads

Cantilever Bridge
A cantilever bridge is a bridge built using cantilevers, structures that project horizontally into space, supported on only one end. For small footbridges, the cantilevers may be simple beams; however, large cantilever bridges designed to handle road or rail traffic use trusses built from structural steel, or box girders built from prestressed concrete. The steel truss cantilever bridge was a major engineering breakthrough when first put into practice, as it can span distances of over 1,500 feet (460 m), and can be more easily constructed at difficult crossings by virtue of using little or no falsework.Contents1 Origins 2 Function 3 Construction methods 4 List by length 5 Examples 6 References 7 External linksOrigins[edit] Engineers in the nineteenth century understood that a bridge that was continuous across multiple supports would distribute the loads among them
