Above are images from a hydrodemolition project we did in Clyde County in Utah a bridge going over the Green River.
One of the best ways to remove concrete, be it layers at a time, or an entire concrete structure laying bear the steel reenforcement, for operations like bridge and road repair, hydrodemolition is rapidly becoming a preferred method.

If you need to remove the concrete and asphalt from a steel structure like a bridge, hydro demolition is usually the best way to go about that.
Hydrodemolition is not used as much for demolition as it is for surface restoration and protection projects. When concrete has deteriorated or the reinforcing steel has begun to corrode, it is necessary to remove any unsound concrete and reinforcing bars (rebar) in order to replace it with new concrete and maintain the integrity of the structure. This process has also been used to remove sound concrete that is not compromised in any way. This may be done to install a preventive cathodic protection system, or to remove concrete in structures in which vibration is a concern. Unlike jackhammers, hydrodemolition does not produce vibrations throughout a structure and therefore does not introduce micro fractures.
Depending on the type of surface as well as the type of substance that needs to be removed from the surface, we would more than likely use hydro blasting to remove any curb painting, road striping, airfield landing strip rubber and other very difficult to remove substances.
