The Woodrow Wilson Memorial Bridge in Washington, D.C. could not be closed to traffic while a new deck was constructed. The engineers designed a precast prestressed and post-tensioned concrete slab system that eliminated transverse joints. The contractor did all the work in 129 nights, keeping two lanes of traffic open at night and all six open during the day. Construction procedures and details are given.
