Project completed in Nov 2020 using ceEntek's ce200SF-G UHPC
The West Girard Avenue (US30) bridge is at an important on/off ramp to Interstate 76 providing critical access to the Philadelphia Zoo. When considering a rehabilitation of the bridge, maintaining traffic flow and minimizing user inconvenience was a significant factor.
The existing structure was built on dry stack masonry abutments which were considered to be in good condition. The project used precast abutment caps grouted with ceEntek’s ce200-120G high strength grout to provide a solid bearing and ce200SF-G between the precast abutment caps.
The new superstrucutre was Precast Modular Units (PMU) with UHPC closure pours using ceEntek’s ce200SF-G.
