Around 40 years ago, the Rodgers Roads Bridge over I-95 was built in Wilmington, Delaware. In order to preserve the bridge's structural integrity a maintenance project was due for long term stability. With a variety of rehabilitation options, a mill-and-overlay repair was scheduled to take place. Overlays come with hardships such as a high occurrence of shrinkage cracks that lead to freeze-thaw deterioration requiring additional maintenance in the future. PREVent-C500 shrinkage-reducing/compensating admixture was implemented and reduced shrinkage cracking by 85-90% that will lead to a longer life cycle.
