Many of the nation’s bridges are in poor condition; therefore, bridge owners are faced with the decision to either replace or repair bridges. Since owners often decide it is more economical to renovate damaged bridges, Cannon prepares to help the owners by integrating the latest advances in repair methods and materials into their construction projects.
Some bridge repair methods include resurfacing bridge decks with silica fume concrete or an epoxy overlay as well as substructure repair involving patching corroded concrete with high strength mortar and placing scour protection devices around submersed piers. As the result of numerous successful projects, Cannon’s personnel have developed methods that have proven to be efficient and effective. This has made Cannon a leader in bridge repair.
