When the Maintenance Division found it necessary to resurface the Clark Memorial and Ashland-Coal Grove Bridges in 1958, a thin, silica sand-asphalt, wearing surface was recommended by the Research Division. The basis of the recommendations was the promising results obtained in laboratory testing and the apparently successful resurfacing of bridges with thin applications of silica sand-asphalt in the New York Area and elsewhere. The design and construction details pertaining to these two projects have been reported previously. This report is a record of the performance of the two projects and of the repair of spalled areas on the deck of Clark Memorial Bridge.
