A discussion on current practice, historical issues, lessons learned, and improved performance of box girder bridges is provided in the report. Much of the information presented is based on responses to a survey of U.S. states and Canadian provinces, as well as a review of current practices and publications. The report is relevant for Accelerated Bridge Construction, new bridge construction, or superstructure replacement projects.

This report is relevant for new bridge construction or bridge deck replacement. It includes an introduction to relatively new technology of full-depth bridge deck systems and information on typical practices including transverse and longitudinal design, as well as design examples. Additionally, there are examples of successful detailing including transverse joints, horizontal shear connection, leveling and temporary support and haunch details between beam and deck. The report also includes information on the production, handling, and construction of full-depth precast deck panels.
