In Cape Fair, Missouri, the bridge over Table Rock Lake was in desperate need of repair, having been built in 1957 and carrying more than 4,000 vehicles every day.

Precast panels were designed to replace the main sections of the bridge. A combination of FasTrac rapid-setting concrete and Helix 5-13 Micro Rebar reinforcement was used to provide connections between each precast panel. The concrete was mixed on-site in ½-yard batches with a barge being used to safely install the precast panels over the Lake below.
