Structures Field Review Site 02 2010Robeson, US 74 (Maxton Bypass) over NC 710 and SR 1003 (Chicken Rd.)
~ Joint repairs in progress. Elastomeric concrete had been replaced in the blockout, but the joint seal had not been installed.
 ~ Requiring fabricators to detail diaphragms for total dead load fit-up was proposed.
 Transitions in slope protection appeared to have errors.
 A/I ~ Structure Design will revise intermediate diaphragm details to include top chords.
 A/I ~ Structure Design will bring up diaphragms for total dead load fit-up for discussion at the Joint AGC-DOT Bridge Design Committee and contact steel fabricators to discuss the concept.
 A/I ~ Structure Design will review slope protection details used in contract plans.
~ New US 74 bridges with armored joints that have failed and will need replacing. Will visit bridge at Exit 200.
 ~ Chicken Road bridge was studied by NCSU for lateral bracing. Bearings rotated/twisted out of plumb after expansion and contraction due to temperature cycle.
