I do not know of any issues

I do not know of any issues with the calculation of deck elevations in PGSuper. Please post your PGSuper project file and describe how you are reporting deck elevations and I'll be happy to take a look at it.

Deck Elevation

I think the issue is in your input. You have a 1580 ft vertical curve defined with a PVI at 1113+35. The grade going into the curve is 2.7886%. The elevation at the beginning of the curve is 105.66 ft at Station 1105+45.
Pier 1 of your bridge is at station 111+74 which is about 1000 stations or 100,000 ft before the start of the vertical curve. The elevation at Pier 1 is about 105ft - 100,000(0.028)=-2695ft.
The deck elevations values computed by PGSuper are very reasonable given the input.

Thanks a lot. I got it. In the framing I missed one "1" and that created the problem. Thanks a lot. Its a quick fix. That's I was wondering whether I am missing something.So I can use the report.
