Abstract:The writer was given the assignment in May 1984 of writing a new Florida concrete bridge design and construction criteria for final approval by the United States Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Consideration was given to developing standard criteria for structure elements, such as pilings, footings, bridge decks, columns, and girders, to provide durable elements when exposed to sea or brackish water. Policy had to be developed that would be cost effective yet still provide adequate protection. Criteria were written and submitted by the writer, who chaired a committee for this purpose to representatives of the Florida concrete industry for response before final submittal to FHWA for approval. Provision was made to use the criteria on a few key projects in Florida in 1985 and 1986. The criteria are discussed in detail in the paper.
