Broad River and Chechessee River Bridges
Beaufort, South Carolina
Structural investigation of the cause of transverse deck cracking and evaluation of crack repairs and the long-term effects of the repairs on bridge deck as part of the SC 170 project for durability and long term maintenance. Each bridge consists of precast bulb-tree girders with cast-in-place deck on cast-in-place piers. RRJ performed resurveys of the deck cracking 6 and 12 years after construction of the initial crack repairs.
