~ 12-span link slab bridge, first visited during the 2005 Spring Field Review.
~ This link-slab bridge consists of deck slabs made continuous at the bents, coupled with debonding the slab from the girder for a few feet at joint locations.
~ It is sometimes used in lieu of continuous for live load structures.
~ Joints in the deck at the link slab consist of saw cuts filled with silicone.
~ The structure has been under traffic for nearly 2 years.
~ The structure features a fairly severe skew, as the skew was based on the flood flow direction rather than the normal water flow direction.
