World's first Ductal® UHPC waffle deck panel bridge in Iowa

Measuring 18.2 meters (60 ft) long by 10 meters (33 ft) wide, the Little Cedar Creek Waffle Deck Bridge in Iowa is the world's first precast Ductal® ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) waffle deck panel bridge connected with field-cast UHPC joints. 

 

Our Ductal® concrete is an extremely dense and durable material, providing excellent solutions for bridge construction due to its chlorides and carbonation resistance.

 

In addition, Ductal® joint fill offers superior strength, durability, resiliency, fluidity and increased bond capacity. In 2012, this demonstration project won the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) Design Award and a Portland Cement Association (PCA) Bridge Design Award of Excellence.
