retrofit on April 29, 2007
3.  Fire damage and collapse of the two spans during the April 29, 2007 fire
4.  Field investigation of the collapse
5.  Analysis of the collapse of the two spans due to the tanker truck fire
(in collaboration with the LLNL)
6.  How the repair and reconstruction was done?
7.  Bridge engineering lessons learned from this fire collapse and
reconstruction that can be applied to protect other bridges.

The project is funded by the National Science Foundation at the University of California Berkeley with A. Astanhe-Asl as Principal Investigator.
