Using Existing Pavement in Place and Achieving Long Life

The goal of this project was to develop reliable procedures and guidelines for identifying when existing pavements can be used in place and the methods necessary to incorporate the original material into the new pavement structure while achieving long...

Use of Concrete Pavement Overlays on U.S. 58 in Virginia (VCTIR 14-R16)

Asphalt overlays are typically used to extend the life of continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) because they can be placed in one or more layers while traffic uses the adjacent lane and can be opened to traffic in a short...

Guide to Concrete Overlays (ACPA TB021.03P)

The primary goal of this guide is to fill the knowledge gap about concrete overlays so that pavement owners can confidently include concrete overlays in their toolbox of pavement solutions and make more informed decisions about designing and constructing...

CRCP: Extending Service Life of Existing Pavements (FHWA-HIF-13-024)

The purpose of this guide is to provide information on best practices in rehabilitation strategies for extending the service life of continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP). The procedures described consist of defining the problem, identifying potential solutions, and selecting...

High Performance Ultrathin CRCP in South Africa

Presented at the National Concrete Consortium (NCC) Spring 2013 Meeting. Presenter: Peter Taylor, PhD, PE

Long-Term Performance and Rehabilitation Strategy of Portland Cement Concrete Pavement on US-290 in Houston, Texas

The 27-mi (43.5 km) section of US-290 between Loop 610 and Badtke Road consists of portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement built at various times with different pavement structures (10-inch and 13-inch-thick (250 mm and 330 mm) slabs). There are two pavement types (continuously...

CRCP Design and Construction Guidelines

Continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP) were introduced in 1921 when the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads built a CRCP section on the Columbia Pike near Arlington, Virginia. Since then CRCP has become standard construction practice in several States, including...

Presented during the FHWA-CRSI Creating Long Life Pavement Solutions - CRCP Workshop on March 23, 2011. Presenter: Jeff Roesler  

Impact of Existing Pavement on Jointed Plain Concrete Overlay Design and Performance

Concrete overlays are increasingly being constructed over deteriorated existing asphalt and concrete pavements. Designers struggle to consider the extent of deterioration of the existing pavement in the design of the concrete overlay. This paper addresses the impact of the...

Ultra Thin Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement Development in South Africa

Ultra thin continuously reinforced concrete pavements (UTCRCP), in literature also referred to as Ultra Thin Heavy Reinforced High Performance Concrete (UTHRHPC), have been used in Europe successfully as a rehabilitation measure on steel bridge decks and reported on at...
