Improving Performance and Cost Effectiveness of CRCP Design Features: Terminal Joints, Construction Joints, Stabilized Subbase Erosion Resistance, and Mix Design

SUMMARY OF PROBLEM: Continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP) have the highest initial cost, but several aspects of pavement design and construction could be revised to reduce the cost while still providing the benefits of low maintenance costs during service...

Criteria for Use of Concrete Pavement Contraction Design

In our continued effort to implement the most cost-effective concrete pavement solutions available, we are expanding the applications where a Concrete Pavement Contraction Design (CPCD) can be used as an acceptable alternative to a Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP). The...

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...

I-65/70 South Split CRC Pavement Replacement Project, Why CRC?

Continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) is constructed with reinforcing steel placed in along the entire length of the pavement. CRCP forms tight transverse cracks to evenly transfer loads without the need of contraction joints. The result is a continuous,...

I-65 to I-70 South Split Construction Project Supervision

This presentation will discuss the efforts made to keep key I-65/I-70 South Split project personnel involved on a daily basis on this fast-track project and the methods used to reach timely solutions for construction- and design-related issues. Strategies used...

I-65 South Split Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement

Continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) is constructed with reinforcing steel placed in along the entire length of the pavement. CRCP forms tight transverse cracks to evenly transfer loads without the need of contraction joints. The result is a continuous,...
