Load Testing and Analysis of a 48-Year Old Out-of-Service Double Tee Girder Bridge

The results and analysis of the Icy Springs Bridge testing will yield insight into the deterioration of one of the first prestressed concrete bridges constructed in Utah. Built in 1965, the 54-foot long Icy Springs Bridge is composed of three double tee girders connected by several welded transverse connections similar to those found in parking structures. The bridge has sustained significant section loss and is posted at only 8 kips total load (traveling at 5 mph). Additionally, plans are not available. By understanding the behavior of this structure, similar structures can be treated in a similar manner and aid load rating engineers in the future.
