Even though the use of RACS as a bridge treatment has fallen off substantially, those bridges already overlaid with RACS represent a substantial long term evaluation problem which will not be eliminated for several decades. The removal of a RACS to perform deck repairs or concrete overlays also represents a major problem due to the need to scarify the surface of the deck to eliminate the RACS. After scarification a bridge deck overlay is normally required to correct grade because the removal process destroys the original deck surface. In some cases the actual condition of the deck is much better than the delamination survey indicates and an overlay may not have been really necessary. We need to explore and develop feasible technologies or procedures for removing RACS without damaging the underlying decks.
