Founded in 1987, the National Concrete Bridge Council (NCBC) is comprised of eight national organizations:

  1. Portland Cement Association
  2. Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute
  3. National Ready Mixed Concrete Association
  4. American Segmental Bridge Institute
  5. Expanded Shale, Clay and Slate Institute
  6. Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute
  7. Wire Reinforcement Institute
  8. Post-Tensioning Institute

The objectives of NCBC are to:

  1. Promote quality in concrete bridge construction
  2. Gather and disseminate information on design, construction, and condition of concrete bridges
  3. Establish communication with federal and state departments of transportation, city and county public works departments, and consulting engineers
  4. Provide information on behalf of the concrete industries to codes and standards groups

In September 1997, NCBC signed a “cooperative agreement” with FHWA to assist in transfer of High Performance Concrete (HPC) technology for bridges developed under State Highway Research Program (SHRP). HPC Bridge Views is one of the products of this agreement.

Concrete Bridge Views is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration
