~ Bent caps appeared unusually deep.
~ There were questions about the development of 'S' bars in the Texas rail.
~ The geometry of the intersection at the end of the bridge opposite from the town raised several issues including:
~~ Sight distances at the landing of the two bridges
~~ Difficulties of shop curving wrap-around guardrail.
~~ Difficulties in forming the curved decorative Texas barrier rail so that it could tie into the guardrail.
~ Some box beam units appeared to have excessive sweep.
~~ Emphasized the need to ensure yard fit-up and match marking the box beam units
~ Order of placing box beam units can influence the size of the gap between units:
~~ Placing the center unit and then placing adjacent units working to the exterior units, or
~~ Placing one exterior unit and then placing adjacent units up to the opposite exterior unit.
~ Consider eliminating retainer blocks since dowels act as lateral movement restraints.
