W/X VIADUCT ON U.S. 50 REHABILITATION PROJECT

Description
The W/X Viaduct on US 50 lies between 18th Street and 24th Street. It is two 2,530 foot-long structures carry six lanes of traffic over city streets, freight, and light rail lines in downtown Sacramento. Built in 1968, they have extensive cracking on the deck and are in need of rehabilitation in order to enhance safety, reduce recurring maintenance costs, and increase the life of the concrete decks. Caltrans repair strategy involves placing a 4-inch concrete deck on top of the existing and treating it with a protective coating of methacrylate, as well as steel column casings for seismic strengthening.

Project Benefits
The service life of the structure decks will be extended to about 20 years, which will significantly reduce maintenance expenditures. The completed project will also provide widening at the shoulders, new joint seals, new concrete barriers and railing, standard lighting, and enhanced safety.
