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...

Improvements of Full Depth Repair Practices for CRCP Distresses (FHWA/TX-12-0-6611-1)

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has by far the most continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) lane miles in the nation and sections as old as 50 years are still in service. Having served much longer than intended, some sections are...

Guidelines for Partial Depth Repair in CRCP (0-5549-P1)

Over the years, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has improved design and construction practices of Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP), which has resulted in good overall performance of CRCP in Texas. At the same time, the improved design and construction practices changed...

Jointed Full-Depth Repair of CRCP (FHWA-HIF-12-007)

This TechBrief describes both conventional methods and an alternative method for making full-depth repairs in continuously reinforced concrete pavements. The alternative method, which does not utilize continuous longitudinal reinforcement in the repair area, is suitable for repairing a single lane (or two...
