Abstract:This paper presents the construction of a bridge deck and jersey barriers with the newly developed polyolefin fiber reinforced concrete. This is the first time this synthetic fiber-reinforced concrete was used in the construction of reinforced concrete structural elements such as bridge deck and jersey barriers. The mixture proportions used, the procedure used for mixing, transporting, placing, consolidating, finishing and curing are described. This new polyolefin fiber-reinforced concrete with enhanced fatigue, impact resistance, modulus of construction of durable highway structures.
