This year's event will be virtual. By registering for the event above (just the first of three days), you are registering for all three days (see agenda below for details).  You will receive an email containing three Microsoft Teams Live Event links - one for each of the 3 conference days. The email containing these links will be sent out the day before the first day of the conference.

The INDOT Bridge Design Conference is an annual conference that allows the bridge design community to come together for continuing education in the areas of bridge design and construction. All INDOT and consultant bridge engineers are invited to attend to learn about the state of the practice. Special guests from the bridge constuction industry will be invited as well to continue to develop the collaborative relationships between INDOT, contractors, and consultant designers.

This event is free of charge.

A certificate for Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be emailed to Professional Engineers (PEs) who register and attend the conference. Hours will only be given for time in the TEAMS Live event.
