The complication of installation technologies and design performance of elements of artificial structures leads to an increase in the risk of emergency situations during the bridge construction. Scientific and engineering support of the construction process of bridge crossings is one of the essential conditions for the prevention or timely elimination of the consequences of such incidents with minimal losses. This will make it possible to provide stakeholders with the necessary data in a timely manner to make appropriate adjustments during the construction process, which may be reflected in refined calculations, individual design solutions and work technologies. This approach can significantly reduce the risks of emergency situations during construction and significantly increase the reliability of the structure during operation. The article describes the features of the process of scientific and engineering support for the construction of several bridge crossings. Analysis of changes in the stress-strain state of structures during construction is noted. The measuring equipment used to fix the necessary indicators is described. The importance of scientific and engineering support of the installation process was confirmed, especially for out-of-class and atypical bridge structures.
