Abstract: Ground penetrating radar (GPR) and portable seismic property analyzer (PSPA), was used in concrete structures for monitoring, quantifying, and mapping the deterioration of bridge decks. The Montauk Bridge deck was assessed based on PSPA and GPR data. Based on the analysis of the PSPA data, it was determined that over 65% of bridge conditions were rated serious to poor condition with an average compressive strength of less than 2500 psi; less than 35% of bridge deck conditions were

Based on GPR data, it was determined that 72% of the bridge deck was in serious to poor condition, and only 28% of the bridge deck was in fair to good condition. Additionally, the analyses of the ground penetrating radar data indicated possible rebar corrosion in places. For these reasons, it is recommended that the Montauk bridge's deck be completely replaced. Keywords: Condition assessment, NDT, GPR, PSPA, bridge deck
