When the long-awaited Highway 151 bypass around Fond du Lac, Wis., opens later this year, vehicles traveling northbound will cross DeNeveu Creek on a bridge like no other in the country.

to place, eliminating weeks of labor-intensive work.
That means workers can pour concrete more quickly, speeding up bridge construction or deck replacement. "The idea is, if you have to do a deck replacement on a busy road like I-90, you want to do it as quickly as possible so you don't have bypasses that are dangerous, or detours, which are even worse," says Bank.

, says recent advances in FRP production and material properties have made FRP bridge-deck designs a reality in Wisconsin. "Wisconsin DOT is looking at this FRP research as a promising potential investment for the future for the design of reinforced concrete that is exposed to chlorides," he says. "Wisconsin DOT may eventually be able to design concrete reinforced with a non-corrosive FRP material......Full article >>>
