What Kind Of Deck is this?

(1/2) > >>

Noticed that itís got steel mixed in with the concrete. 

If itís the same deck NYC uses on the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Williamsburg Bridges it was bad traction in the former days of snow tires as my dadís car used to slide driving across those bridges when he had snow tires on his wheels.

Big John:
Steel grid with concrete fill.

And it'll be meeting the wrecking ball soon, as NJDOT is getting ready to replace the overpass.


Something similar on MA 125 in Haverhill MA.
