BRIDGE DECK OVERLAY
People rely on bridges in order to travel every day. It is important that these infrastructures are reliable and safe. Applying an Epoxy overlay results in decreased maintenance costs over the lifetime of the bridge. This overlay can reduce stopping distances by up to 40% on both wet and dry pavement. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has reported a before and after crash reduction of 69% when High Friction Surface Treatment was installed. High Friction Surface Treatment is also implemented as a safety countermeasure to reduce crashes at high-risk intersections.
The Advantages of Epoxy Overlay vs. Conventional Concrete:
Epoxy cures faster
Stronger durability for road traffic
Is more corrosion resistant to chemicals like fuel, de-icer, and motor oil
Has a waterproof seal that extends the life of the bridge
