I-84 Bridges – Baker City, OR

Baker City, OR - 2018

Project Description

The bridges on I-84 at Pleasant Valley and Alder Creek needed demolished and reconstructed. Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) chose to use FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers for this 2,000-cu yd project with a fiber dosage of 5.0 lb/cu yd. This was the first use of FORTA-FERRO by ODOT. The intended overlay that was being applied was to be 2 in thick
concrete which would have been too thin of a cross section to reliably place traditional steel reinforcement. Using the fibers meant the overlay would have full depth reinforcement while
also saving time and money by forgoing steel costs and placing methods. The fibers would also help reduce potential cracking as well as aid in holding any cracks tightly together that may appear.
