IA 163 Floyd River Bridge

 

Solutions & Technologies

In partnership with Iowa State University and Iowa State DOT, with participation from Wapello and Buchana counties in Iowa, this project was the first to implement overlay application of UHPC using automated paver system brought by Walo from Europe.
 

Challenge

The challenge was to utilize the automation aspect of finishing Ductal® UHPC overlay to a smooth riding surface using a specialized paving system utilized on a major project in Europe. Prior to this, applications utilized small scale vibratory screeds.

 

Description

The project in partnership with Walo and Ductal® allow both partners to bring UHPC Material and placement/paver finishing know how to provide the first overlay project in the USA using this combination of technologies. The project was completed successfully using staged construction while maintaining traffic over IA-163.

Delaware Memorial Bridge

In 1951, the Delaware Memorial Bridge was opened to traffic allowing commuters to navigate over the Delaware River on a 3,650 ft (1,112 m) long state-of-the-art suspension bridge.

 

Chillon Viaducts

The Chillon Viaducts have been reinforced by an Overlay of Ductal® UHPC. Thanks to its mechanical characteristics and its durability properties, Ductal® was the only material able to provide an efficient retrofitting preserving the bearing capacity of the bridge, a lower maintenance cost and a quick retro commissioning of an important axis of the Swiss highway network. The two Chillon Viaducts are among the most spectacular infrastructure works of the Swiss highway network. Ductal® was prescribed for the reinforcement of the two decks (2.2 km long by 12 m wide each). The implementation of thin layer of Ductal® (4 cm thick) with rebars, allowed the strengthening of the bridge decks for shear loads, bending, and fatigue while ensuring the waterproofing of the surface.
