Abstract:
The service-life performance of concrete bridge decks, including maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation needs, is directly related to the care exercised from the preconstruction through post-construction period. This guide provides recommendations for bridge deck construction based on considerations of durability, concrete materials, reinforcement, placing, finishing and curing, and overlays.
