CRCP in California after Eight Years Service

An experimental continuously-reinforced concrete pavement one mile in length was constructed in California in 1949.  After eight years of heavy traffic, it remains in good condition.  Adjacent sections of non-reinforced jointed pavement constructed at the same time are also in relatively good condition, with the exception of a moderate amount of faulting at a few joints.  The experimental pavement has not reached sufficient age to warrant comparison with non-reinforced pavement on an economic basis.
