The fast setting of a bridge deck replacement on a chilly April day in Indiana is described. A new deck was placed on an overcast, blustery day using a new proprietary blended hydraulic cement, Pyrament. The primary considerations in its use were quick turnaround of the bridge deck, and long-term durability. Details of the construction are briefly noted. The concrete was batched just as conventional concrete. The plastic concrete was pumped and distributed over rebar ahead of a deck finisher. Other details of the construction are noted. Anticipated resistance of the cured Pyrament concrete to chloride ion penetration permitted use of reinforcing steel without epoxy coating.
