This report documents and presents the results of a comprehensive assessment of the protective capabilities of all bridge deck waterproofing membranes known to be available when the project started (1970). An extensive program of laboratory testing supplemented by a limited program of field study led to the selection from an original group of 147 systems, five that appeared most promising for more intensive field evaluation. Materials and construction specifications were prepared for the five systems, in addition to an experimental plan for the field evaluation. The new work is being under taken as a second phase of the study.
