GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) is of high stiffness to weight ratio, as a result, GFRP bridge deck has an excellent mechanical performance. Five aspects of GFRP bridge literatures were reviewed respectively: GFRP laminates’ mechanical properties, GFRP bridge deck configuration and its mechanical property, bridge deck’s conjunction, thermal effects of bridge deck, connection of GFRP profile. Through the review and categorization, the problems during the application and development of GFRP bridge deck were highlighted. Further research interests were pointed out for GFRP bridge’s development in China.
