Due to its high compressive strength, higher tensile capacity, and ultralow permeability ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) can find broad applications in bridge construction and repair. The growing utilization of UHPC across the US, including locally produced materials, creates new opportunities for sharing material design and processing methods, structural and repair design considerations, and construction methods. This paper reviews recent UHPC bridge projects in Georgia by presenting case studies on Georgia’s use of UHPC in the construction of the state’s bridges. Additionally, details are given about recent research projects on UHPC funded by the Georgia Department of Transportation.
