RESTORATION AND PROTECTION OF DAMAGED CONCRETE

THE NEW YORK STATE THRUWAY AUTHORITY, DURING THE PAST FIVE YEARS, HAS DONE CONSIDERABLE WORK IN RESTORING DISINTEGRATED CONCRETE ON PIER CAPS, ABUTMENTS, PAVEMENTS, CURBS, SIDEWALKS, AND LARGE AREAS OF CONCRETE STRUCTURE SLABS. NEW METHODS AND MATERIALS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED THAT ARE FELT TO BE VERY SATISFACTORY AND ARE FLEXIBLE IN THEIR APPLICATION. NEW EXACTING TECHNIQUES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR WATERPROOFING VARIOUS PARTS OF THE THRUWAY STRUCTURES, INCLUDING BOTH EXISTING CONCRETE AND CONCRETE RESTORATIONS. THE METHODS EMPLOYED AND MATERIALS USED SHOULD BE OF INTEREST TO THOSE FACED WITH SIMILAR PROBLEMS OF DETERIORATING CONCRETE STRUCTURES. /AUTHOR/
