This study focuses on the recent advances in information and communication technologies (ICTs) and their applications in the seismic design, construction and assessment of bridges. It aims to review and critically demonstrate advanced numerical analysis methods, open source finite element programs, web-based engineering tools, decision-making systems, collaborative on-site and remote research tools, frameworks for hybrid simulation, data and metadata dissemination and archiving, wireless data transmission and structural health monitoring, as well as earthquake-specific geographical information system applications; all developed and implemented recently, in order to enhance our understanding regarding the response of bridges under earthquake loading and thus, ultimately, mitigate seismic risk. The study concludes with the current research needs and challenging opportunities in integrating the current technological advancements in modern seismic codes and construction practice.
