Wood bridge decks are almost uniformly constructed with metal support systems to both reinforce the strength of the material and provide insurance against possible weakening and failure of wood in the face of extreme heat and moisture.
CONCRETE DECK SLAB. The most commonly constructed deck element is the concrete deck slab. This structural slab is designed to be between 7” and 9” thick and is reinforced with two layers of steel reinforcing bars. Many times these bars are coated with epoxy for corrosion protection depending on the bridge location and environment.
Our Steel bridge Decking is roll-formed using Grade 50 steel in either Galvanized or Weathering finishes and is 4.25″ deep.

Deck Types Prefabricated bridges have been decked with gravel, grass, paving stones, natural flag stone, FRP grate and plate, various types of metal grating and asphalt. The most common decks by far are wood and concrete.
Most composite deck boards are also weaker than wood boardwalks and begin to sag under a high volume of traffic. Maintenance Requirements Composites are more durable than pressure-treated timber decking, without the concern of rotting, splintering or termite damage.

Such a bridge deck may well have a wearing surface of tarmacadam, which can be replaced from time to time. Sometimes, usually because a bridge is temporary, the deck may be steel. It will have an anti skid surface, and will be galvanised, and will come in panels with frequent joist support.
