Abstract: Water bleeding and grout segregation from conventional Portland cement grout and improper
grout practice have created pockets of voids and soft grouts, and water/moisture in many
bridges. Water or sufficient moisture presence and corrosive ion concentration have caused
corrosion in the tendons. A cost-effective corrosion mitigation technique has been developed
to minimize the corrosion of post-tensioned (PT) tendons and extend the service life of
bridges which have grout issues. This paper describes techniques to evaluate post-tensioning
tendons, the development and implementation of this technique on grouted PT tendons in
segmental bridges, including the Ringling Bridge (Sarasota, Florida (FL)), the I-95 / I-295
Interchange in Jacksonville, FL and the I-4 Connector in Tampa, FL.
