    Prep KC and Project Lead the Way are in need of volunteers for various STEM events throughout the winter and spring months. These events offer excellent opportunities to volunteer and positively impact students as they grow. They are also a great way for MSPE members to get involved in additional STEM events.

    Prep KC provides the students in their partner schools with opportunities to engage with business professionals and higher education faculty to help young people explore their futures and see the relevance of rigorous academic preparation in high school and beyond. Their mission is to "Create and implement strategies to improve college and career preparation for Kansas City's urban students."

    Project Lead The Way is the nation’s leading provider of rigorous STEM education for elementary, middle and high school students. The curriculum emphasizes critical thinking, creativity, innovation and real-world problem solving.

    May Joint Luncheon

    Morals, Ethics, and Integrity – Know Your Line in the Sand

    Abstract:  In this presentation the speaker explores definitions of terms related to ethics in professional practice, presents current examples of ethically questionable situations, and discusses ways to recognize a slippery slope early in the process. Ethics is not just a list of rules – right and wrong are not always easy to discern. How do ethics and legality interplay in decision making? Cognitive dissonance is discussed in the context of making ethical decisions amid conflicting values and beliefs. When repeated, ethical decision-making becomes habitual and leads to a more reflexive process for our future decisions.

    About the Presenter:  DALE SMITH, P.E., F.ASCE, holds a bachelor’s degree in Geological Engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology and a master’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Smith is Geotechnology’s south region geotechnical manager with 16 professional staff, currently located in their Memphis, Tennessee office. He worked for the U.S. Navy and three engineering firms before moving back to St. Louis for a position with Geotechnology where he has been employed since the summer of 1995. In his time with Geotechnology he has managed a wide array of projects and worn many hats, including managing the Illinois office for 9 years and project managing jobs ranging up to the recent MSD River Des Peres combined sewer overflow tunnel exploration. Currently he is managing projects for Tennessee and Arkansas DOTs. He was awarded the Geotechnology Ronald M. Eckelkamp Leadership Award in 2017.

    June Luncheon

    Thursday, June 18th, 2020

    Sliding the Poplar Street Bridge

    Abstract: The Poplar Street Bridge is a 50 year old five span (300’-500’-600’-500’-265’) 2165’ long structure which carries I-64 &I-55 over the Mississippi River in downtown St. Louis and connects Missouri and Illinois. The bridge has twin Eastbound and Westbound superstructures consisting of two variable depth steel box girders (25’ max. depth) with an orthotropic steel deck on a shared substructure.

    The Missouri Department of Transportation hired HDR to provide the following improvements to the Poplar Street Bridge: 1) Increase lane capacity of the EB Bridge from 4 to 5 lanes in conjunction with improving interchange ramp structures on the Missouri side, 2) provide a new and improved riding surface and 3) Rehabilitate the structure.

    A unique aspect of the project was the sliding of the existing bridge. In lieu of a traditional widening, the eastbound superstructure was successfully slid 9’ to the south onto widened piers on March 31, 2018 over the course of 2.5 hours and was widely reported as the 2nd longest bridge slide ever in the United States by length. The eastbound and westbound superstructures were then connected together using a concrete deck on a stringer-floor-beam type cross frame system which added redundancy and improved the performance of the structure.

    Greg Kuntz is Bridge Section Manager in HDR’s St. Louis office. He is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Rolla and the University of Kansas. He has nearly 20 years of experience in the management, design and construction of highway bridge projects, primarily for the Missouri Department of Transportation. His projects include numerous major river crossings and complex rehabilitations
