The Driscoll Bridge


This bridge will span the Raritan River in New Jersey. When completed, the new bridge will carry 8 lanes of vehicles. Type 316LN and Alloy 2205 stainless steel rebar was specified for use in the bridge deck and other elements. Thus far, a total of 1300 tons of stainless rebar has been specified.

The Woodrow Wilson Bridge


This bridge system will span the Potomac River to link Virginia and Maryland. The first 12-lane bridge (of the twin bridges) is scheduled for completion in late 2005/early 2006. The second bridge should be completed in late 2007/early 2008. Thus far, 1100 tons of stainless steel rebar (Type 316LN and/or Alloy 2205) has been specified. More information on the project can be found on the following web site: www.roadstothefuture.com

The use of Mo-containing stainless steel rebar is expected to continue to increase as Federal, State, Provincial and municipal authorities demand much lower maintenance costs and longer lifetimes for their road and highway bridges. Along with the stainless rebar, other stainless steel products such as tie-wire, couplers and dowels are used to complete these corrosion resistant structures.
