Polymer grid technology a boon for bridges

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.

The fiber-reinforced polymer grid system could help to speed bridge-deck construction
Externally, the bridge looks identical to its adjacent twin. However, interna......

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.

"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......
