BRIDGE PILINGS CAN BE PROTECTED; FRP JACKETS STOP DETERIORATION

The first article on this subject in the magazine (The April issue of BETTER ROADS) carried a report on the action of gribbles and corrosion on wood, concrete and steel bridge pilings in salt water installations, and a method of repair for pilings under such attack. Deterioration can also occur to an equal or perhaps even greater extent in fresh water and inland installations. This second article deals with those problems and a means of repair and control employing fiberglass reinforced plastic jackets.
