Middle Street Bus Transit Center – Honolulu, HI

Honolulu, HI - 2010

Project Description

The Middle Street Bus Transit Center in Honolulu, HI is located on poor expansive soil. While fibers were included in the specification for the transit center’s slab-on-ground, the original slab design called for #4 rebar spaced at 12” on center. With the assistance of knowledgeable FORTA staff, the engineer chose to add FORTA-FERRO at a dosage of 7.5 lb/cu yd in conjunction with the #4 rebar. The addition of FORTA-FERRO allowed the engineer to extend the rebar spacing to 24” on center. This “belt and suspenders” design provides greatly improved curling and crack reduction, as well as add impact resistance and toughness to the concrete which the rebar alone cannot provide. This project demonstrates how well FPRTA-FERRO performs in many different areas.
