Burnhamthorpe Bridge - Ontario

2009

Project Details:
Pultrall manufactured V-ROD® GFRP reinforcement for complete barrier replacement on decks of Credit River (400m) and Mullet Creek (140m) bridges. V-ROD® GFRP rebar used in a total of 540m of barriers, sidewalks, curbs and tendon covers on existing bridge decks. Barrier wall bar, curbs and sidewalks mainly used #5 (16m) and #4 (13m) while sidewalks also used some # #3 (10m), #6 (19m) and #8 (25m). Lightpole bases also used #5 bar. V-ROD® non-corrosive, lightweight, and durable properties provide long-term durability and performance of structures for owners. This was the key factor in using GFRP particularly in the splash zones.
