Abstract:

A new approach to the problem of rehabilitation and widening of bridges on an Indiana toll road is shown in this paper. The paper describes some unique factors that are being employed to improve the Indiana Toll Road. The first requirement for the design was to keep two lanes operational in each direction during the construction process in order to minimize the traffic impediments which ruled out the complete demolition of structures as an option. A very important engineering effort was carried out to achieve this requirement. After a careful identification of the pre-existing damages, the correct treatment was implemented. A special treatment against damages produced by de-icing salts has been designed using cathodic protection to avoid cell effect. Each stage of the construction process for the widening has been analyzed coordinating geometrical and structural conditions with traffic management.
