Michael M. Sprinkel
Year: 1984
VTRC No.: 84-R26
Abstract: The installation of a thin polymer concrete overlay on the Big Swan Creek Bridge provides further evidence that an overlay of low permeability can be soundly bonded to a concrete bridge deck by maintenance forces with a minimum of disruption to traffic. A discussion of when to specify a thin polymer concrete overlay is appended to the report.
