The existing rebar reinforced deck slab and bridge railing on the Peace Bridge is being replaced with L.B. Foster’s steel grid reinforced concrete deck panels and railing systems.

The design specifies that the railing anchor bolts penetrate the new bridge decking, requiring the railing and deck panel installation to be coordinated. L.B. Foster’s engineering department will be detailing both the grid deck panels and bridge railing to ensure critical component matchup during installation.

The grid material will be fabricated in L.B. Foster's plant in Bedford, PA.

L.B. Foster steel grid decking is engineered to exact specifications to expedite deck replacement and minimize traffic congestion during construction.
