The NCEER-INCEDE Center-to-Center Project focused on the development of improved post-earthquake urban reconstruction strategies. Three specific tasks were conducted during the first three years of the project: 1) document experiences of agencies charged with restoration and reconstruction of transportation and water lifelines after the Northridge and Kobe earthquakes; 2) consider ways of improving governmental capacity for managing post-disaster response, restoration and early recovery; and 3) develop a model reconstruction system that is both robust and resilient. To further these goals, a workshop was held in March 1997, the proceedings of which are the subject of this report. This report contains papers and resolutions offered at the workshop on the topics of design, construction, performance and reconstruction of transporation facilities, especially highway bridges.
