This bridge is located in an industrial area with heavy truck traffic. The 4000 square ft. bridge deck consisted of 17 pre-fabricated panels. The panels were installed in one day; with a second day for connections of deck to girders; and finishing on a third day of panel-to-panel sealing.
The deck size measures 117.8 feet by 34 feet, and each deck panel measures 8.3 feet by 34 feet. The deck is 7.7 inches deep, and the total area of the deck surface is 4,005 square feet.
The surface of the bridge deck contains an asphalt overlay. The products used in this installation were prefabricated FRP bridge deck panels that were bolted to the steel superstructure using welded shear studs.
