Project Completed In September 2020 Using ceEntek’s ce200SF-t UHPC

When Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority (RITBA) evaluated the options to provide a rapid rehabilitation of the concrete roadway deck of 4,500 feet to the bridge’s eastbound center lane they decided to apply a 4.5 cm (1 ¾”) thick UHPC overlay to extend the life of the bridge deck. Two challenges when rehabilitating a suspension bridge deck are no increase in dead load and placing an overlay while the suspension bridge is constantly moving from heavy traffic and high winds. ceEntek was selected for this project due to its “Best in Class” service and the ability of its Next Generation UHPC 2.0 thixotropic system to meet the project demands.
