Project Background

Due to settlement of the intermediate slabs adjacent to the bridge, there was a hazardous dip on Route 35 in Belmar, NJ. When slab jacking was not able to rectify the problem, New Jersey Department of Transportation officials turned to Kwik Bond Polymers for an effective solution.

The Solution

The recommendation from KBP was to place a variable thickness mat of PPC 1121 Polyester Polymer Concrete to a new proposed grade. The material would be placed from 3⁄4 inch to 4 inches thick in a single lift to fill in the dip and reestablish a safe, smooth ride. DOT officials accepted the recommendation and the project planning began.
