Research work to develop methods for using concrete-polymer materials to eliminate the premature deterioration of bridge decks is reported. The techniques for repairing highly deteriorated and delaminated concrete by monomer impregnation have been demonstrated in field tests. The use of polymer concrete as a rapid patching material has also been demonstrated and the work has reached the implementation stage. Polymer impregnation of concrete bridge deck surfaces will prevent the intrusion of deicing salts into the decks. Development work has culminated in the impregnation of a deck surface in Denver. This program is also being implemented. This report is the fourth in a series.
