Airport Access Road Bridge at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport

SK&A provided testing and inspection services for the Airport Access Road Bridge maintenance project at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.  The project involved furnishing, placing, finishing, and curing a very-early-strength latex modified concrete (LMC-VE) for bridge deck overlays.  LMC-VE is a concrete incorporating a styrene butadiene latex polymer that conforms to Subsection 711.04, which meets specified performance characteristics in addition to standard structural concrete properties.  SK&A also provided field technicians to perform tensile testing services in accordance with the project specifications, ACI 503R and ASTM C1583.   After the overlay system was installed and adequately cured, SK&A inspected and tested to verify conformance with the accepted application procedures.  A visual inspection was performed in conjunction with bond strength testing in accordance with ASTM C1583.
