This study is part of an effort directed to the reduction of short span bridge costs in Louisiana. This particular effort is devoted to the development of precast intermediate pile bent caps and the connection of such elements to precast piles. Both conventionally reinforced and prestressed rectangular shapes are presented. Individual pile caps or capitols are presented for use where piles are superstructure girders with continuity diaphragms permit. Concrete and grout type connections are discussed and an essentially welded connection is presented. /Author/
