Project Synopsis

Title: Heating Late-Season Bridge Deck Pours
Project Researcher: Ken Buss,
Project Manager:
Research Period: -
Cost: $0.00

Problem Statement:Late-season bridge deck pours can develop into potential maintenance problems if the fresh concrete is not adequately protected during the curing period. Current specifications do not provide the contractor sufficient guidelines concerning the use of enclosures to protect the concrete. Detailed specifications are needed to address enclosures and payment strategies. Payment strategies need to be developed when late-season pours are in the best interest of SDDOT.
