Happy New Year, everyone!
Can you believe we're already in 2019? While I haven't had any trouble writing it, my brain is still having some trouble making the transition. One thing I decided to do this year was not make resolutions, but set goals for myself with individual start and end dates that have nothing to do with the beginning or end of a new year. I think if you're going to resolve to do something, why wait? That said, what goals have you set for yourself this year? Is there a big project you're looking to kickoff or finish up? Are you looking to enhance your project management skill set? Tell us in the comments below so we can support you! In the meantime, here's your January News You Can Use:

50 hours to rebuild a railroad bridge…and the schedule was for 96 hours! A story linked from PM Port tells how a design-build team demolished the old bridge, located in Columbus, Indiana, USA, and slid in a new bridge. Innovative planning and design facilitated the project, as did use of rapid bridge replacement construction techniques. The team overcame challenges such as unexpected ground conditions and the need to raise the bottom of the new bridge above the flood plain.
