Bridge Rehabilitation and Crack Repair The subjects of bridge rehabilitation and crack repair are important areas of study for a number of reasons. Both the maintenance and the durability of bridges are of concern for engineers, officials, and indeed, the public in general. Bridges are important connecting links in our systems of infrastructure, and their proper maintenance is essential toward maintaining a sound highway and transportation system. Research and technology are important insofar as these advancements ultimately create safer structures, improved designs, and ultimately more durable bridges. The importance of bridges to infrastructure cannot be understated and effective crack repair as part of an overall comprehensive bridge...The end:
