Hydrodemolition for full deck removal?

Jan 5, 2012 in Announcements

Can Hydrodemolition be used for a full depth removal of a concrete bridge deck?  The answer is yes!

In most cases, the entire surface area of the existing deck does not need to be Hydrodemolished, but only narrow full depth longitudinal trenches directly over the girders to expose the reinforcing steel.  From there the reinforcing can be cut which would allow for the uncut sections in between the beams to be simply lifted off preserving and re-using the beams in place.
