Abstract:Describes restoration of an art deco-style concrete pedestrian bridge constructed in 1936. A combination of nature, use of deicing salts, vandalism, and deferred maintenance had caused extensive deterioration of the nonair-entrained concrete. Freezing and thawing had delaminated most of the outside face of the centerspan girders. Three concrete mixes were used to match the various naturally exposed aggregate finishes of the existing concrete. Random cracks throughout the bridge were filled by pressure injection of epoxy compounds and a latex-modified concrete overlay was placed on the deck.
