   scoPe of Project: Following the collapse of the I35W Bridge, MN DOT and Flatiron Construction set
   out to build a new segmental post tensioned bridge. Unlike other post tensioned bridges, this did not have a high
   density concrete overlay. Instead the driving surface would be built into the segmental form. After grinding a
   surface profile onto the bridge deck, Flatiron chose to seal the surface with a reactive methacrylate penetrating
   sealer. Using Degadeck Crack Sealer Plus allowed Flatiron to seal any micro cracking that may have occurred
   below the surface of the bridge deck.
