Concrete: What Makes (Rehabbing) It So Hard?

Join this session to hear how the panelists answer, "What is your biggest challenge associated with Pennsylvania's concrete bridges?" They are everywhere in the Commonwealth, most combining two materials for which Pennsylvania was known: concrete and steel. How do they manage a huge inventory of resources? Which types can be rehabbed while retaining their National Register integrity? Where is the line between a major rehabilitation and a replica? Help make this an interactive experience - submit questions before and during the session on www.sli.do or in writing at the session. We may even conduct lightning polls to help guide the discussion! An access code to the site will be emailed to registrants prior to the session.
