Halls River Bridge Replacement Project Showcases New Technologies

Corrosion is a constant concern for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Due to the aggressive environment in Florida – high humidity, high temperatures, high water tables, and high exposure to salt water – maintenance of the steel or steel-reinforced concrete parts of bridges can become very expensive. An FDOT study of 54 bridge projects … Continue reading Halls River Bridge Replacement Project Showcases New Technologies

Flexible Fillers Bring Increased Corrosion Protection to Post-Tensioned Bridges

Prestressed or post-tensioned concrete is widely used in bridge construction. It is an efficient and cost-effective method that allows for lighter, stronger structures that can cross wider spans. Stressing is a method of adding strength to concrete by including steel cables under stress which run through plastic ducts in the concrete. Cementitious grout is then injected … Continue reading Flexible Fillers Bring Increased Corrosion Protection to Post-Tensioned Bridges
