A new bridge deck system developed a few years ago using Precast Deck Panels with Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) joints has been gaining popularity. This new deck system utilizes the superior characteristics of UHPC to simplify the precast panel fabrication and installation processes as opposed to the conventional approach such as internal post-tensioning. This paper presents the application of this new deck system to a recent $450 million Circle Interchange Project in Chicago.
