Cape Town’s Concrete Bus Lanes

Over 30 kilometres of continually reinforced concrete pavement have already been constructed for the new MyCiti bus system in Cape Town. The construction method for this concrete road system doesn't have any joints in it, except at intersections where...

A New Era for Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement from September 2013 Issue of FHWA’s FOCUS (FHWA-HRT-13-017)

“CRCP has the potential to provide a long-term, zero-maintenance service life under heavy traffic loadings and challenging environmental conditions, provided proper design and quality construction practices are utilized,” said Sam Tyson of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). CRCP differs from...

Evaluation of Internally Cured Concrete for Paving Applications

Internally Cured Concrete (ICC) is a concrete mixture in which a portion of the coarse, intermediate, and/or fine aggregates (for example, 30 percent of sand) is replaced with similar sized prewetted lightweight aggregate (LWA). Internal curing (IC) is a...

Effect of Pavement Support Condition on CRCP Behavior and Performance

Based on visual survey, dynamic cone penetrometer testing, and falling weight deflectometer testing on several continuous reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) sections with or without distresses and high or low deflection, different support condition is the main cause of difference...

Project Level Performance Database for Rigid Pavements in Texas, II (FHWA/TX-14-0-6274-2)

The primary objectives of this project included the collection of information on continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) behavior and performance in Texas to calibrate the mechanistic-empirical pavement design procedure for CRCP developed under TxDOT research study 0-5832, and the overall evaluation of...

Minimize Premature Distresses in CRCP (FHWA/TX-14-0-6687-1)

The long-term performance of continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) has been quite satisfactory in Texas, providing an important network of highways with heavy truck traffic and minimal maintenance. Field evaluations of the performance of CRCP in Texas reveal that a substantial...

CRCP Design Using the AASHTO Pavement ME Design Program (FHWA-HIF-13-027)

With the completion of the mechanistic–empirical pavement design guide and the recent availability of the AASHTOWare® Pavement ME Design software, design of continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) has undergone significant changes. The primary purpose of this TechBrief, based on...

CRCP: Improved Transition Designs (FHWA-HIF-13-026)

A transition between a continuously reinforced concrete (CRC) pavement and any other type of pavement or structure needs to accommodate a gradual change in either the configuration or the structural capacity of the pavement cross section to maintain rideability,...
