When Connecticut officials decided they needed to replace the deteriorated Long Hill Brook Bridge on Route 17 in Middletown, they knew the work needed to be completed quickly. The bridge was too critical for the heavy use it received to allow detours to last long. To achieve these goals, designers specified a precast concrete structure with ultra-high early strength so the bridge could be replaced over one weekend.
