PRECAST CONCRETE REPLACEMENT SLABS FOR BRIDGE DECKS

The report illustrates and evaluates the first use in Virginia of precast concrete replacement slabs for bridge decks. It shows that a bridge deck can be replaced with the precast slabs while traffic is maintained in the adjacent traffic lane. The quality of the prototype deck appears to be comparable to that of a conventional site-cast deck and, although a conventional deck could be constructed for slightly less money, the new design offers the advantage of reduced on-site construction time that would be worth the added cost in many situations.
