BIM technology is one of the most widely used technologies in the construction industry because of its apparent advantages. The application of BIM technology in bridge construction will give full play to the advantages of virtualization analysis and visual interpretation of BIM technology, so that the construction personnel can clarify and then solve the construction problems, and finally effectively improve the quality and efficiency of bridge construction. The construction of a building information model supported by BIM technology connects bridge construction, design, operation, maintenance, and other stages in series, solves the problem of collision inspection, and realizes the automatic statistics of engineering quantities. This work mainly analyzed the specific application of BIM technology in bridge construction, clarified its application advantages and application manifestations, and put forward some application suggestions.
