Project: Cuyahoga Valley National Park
Product: Pedestrian Bridge Deck
Overview: When the previous rehabilitation of this structure lasted less than ten years, the FHWA engineers at Eastern Federal Lands decided to go with the longest-lasting deck product available: FRP decking. Truss rehabilitation included cleaning and coating and replacement of stringers. To minimize the construction costs, the FRP deck was slid into place from the end spans so railings could remain in place. The teak color was selected for the overlay to blend best with the surroundings. This bridge deck is 212.8 feet by 8 feet for an area of 1,752 square feet.
