Clean simple lines of this replacement bridge over the York River on Route one between Kittery and Portland, Maine were achieved using the New England 1800 Bulb-Tee girder.
This structure was constructed with three spans of New England Bulb-Tees each spanning 108 feet.The deck was formed with 210 pieces of 3-1/2” thick S.I.P precast/prestressed deck slabs and site-cast top surface.
Deck slabs were used in place of traditional wood forms, thus eliminating costly stripping of the form-work over water. The S.I.P slabs became an integral element of the finished concrete bridge deck.
This approach of using precast/prestressed concrete girders and S.I.P deck slabs has proven to be both economical and versatile as well as being esthetically pleasing.
