Damages to concrete bridge decks could be as superficial as cracks or potholes in the first layer; or, damages could be complex enough to require immediate and complete rehabilitation to improve support and safety. Partner with a company that knows the difference, and provides services for both and everything between:
Bridge deck overlays are a more cost-effective repair option that ensures the stability of a concrete deck structure, while minimizing disruption of traffic. We typically recommend overlays for decks with minimal damage and projects with funding constraints, as there are multiple overlay options applicable for varying extents of damages.
Deck patching services include the sealing and repair of concrete deck surface damages like cracks and potholes. Epoxy injections, urethane injections, and sealants may be used to close gaps and improve the stability of the deck. Patching may need to occur before a deck overlay.
Complete bridge deck rehabilitation is required when damages extend to the support structures beneath the first layer. This service, though more costly, provides completely new support and deck structure that should withstand environmental and traffic conditions for decades.
