Bridge restoration is separated into two major categories: bridge deck overlays and retrofits. Myers and Sons Construction places several different types of overlays on bridge decks including Polyester Concrete, Methacrylate, Multi Layer Epoxy and Multi Layer Polymer Overlay. Each type of overlay protects the bridge deck and internal rebar from corrosion and long term damage. Bridge retrofit work can be comprised of several different types of work in an effort to bring the bridge up to current seismic and safety standards to extend the lifespan of the structure. This can include repairing and replacing joint seal assemblies, replacing or adding bearing pads, replacing restrainer cables, adding shear keys, expanding and reinforcing existing foundations, repairing and/or wrapping concrete columns in a steel or composite shell and upgrading the barrier rail.
