  8. Construction • Details for Longevity • Approach Ditches • Cross Drains

  9. Construction • Details for Longevity • Earth-Wood Interface • Screwing vs. Nailing

  10. Construction • Weathering Steel Corrosion Problems • Technical Advisory – T5140.22http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/legsregs/directives/techadvs/t514022.htm • Environment • Marine Coastal Areas • Frequent High rains, High Humidity or Persistent fog • Locations to avoid • Tunnel Like Conditions • Low Water Crossings • 10 feet – over stagnant water • 8 feet – over moving water

  11. Construction • Corrosion problems with new wood treatments http://www.strongtie.com/productuse/corrosion.html • Conclusion from Technical Bulletin • Certain treatments are more corrosive than CCA. • Treated wood industry recommends use of Stainless Steel or Hot-dip Galvanized fasteners and connectors. • Check to make sure fasteners, connectors and wood treatment type are compatible.
