State Route 132 Bridge Preventative Maintenance Project

Project Description

This project is located near the town of Vernalis in San Joaquin County at seven (7) bridge locations on State Route (SR) 132. The project proposes to do bridge preventative maintenance which consists of repairing the existing bridge deck concrete, overlaying the bridge decks with polyester concrete, replacing joint seals, repairing, and paving the bridge deck approach and departure slabs, and upgrading connected metal beam guardrail as needed, to Midwest Guardrail System (MGS). 


Purpose and Need

The purpose and need of this project is to provide preventive maintenance work to the bridges to delay or minimize its future rehabilitation needs, and to deter costly rehabilitation or replacement actions.

The proposed work is to overlay the bridge deck with polyester concrete would provide additional cover to the deck. The replacement of damaged joint seals prevents debris from entering the joints causing spalls.
