The procedures required to obtain a truly satisfactory and lasting repair of a deteriorated area of a bridge floor are radically different from ordinary new construction. The specifications outlining these procedures were developed after considerable experimentation and have, if closely adhered to, been found to yield highly satisfactory results. Thorough inspection is necessary to insure full compliance with the detailed requirement. This discussion of bridge floor repairs is issued as an aid to inspectors on this type of work. The author is bridge designer John Whiting, who prepares the floor repair plans and who is largely responsible for the preparation of the floor repair specifications.
