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...

CRCP Design Using the AASHTOWare Pavement ME Design Procedure (FHWA-HIF-13-025)

With the completion of the Mechanistic–Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) and the recent designation of the MEPDG software as AASHTOWare® Pavement ME Design, the standard for CRCP design has undergone significant changes from the 1993 AASHTO Pavement Design Guide....

High Performance Ultrathin CRCP in South Africa

Virginia DOT (VDOT): Hydraulic Cement Concrete Paving

CRCP Performance and Best Practices (FHWA-HIF-12-039)

Continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) is enjoying a renaissance across the United States and around the world. 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...

Character, Extent, and Severity of Corrosion in Continuously Reinforced Pavements in South Dakota

A major drawback of continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) is the potential for the steel reinforcement to corrode. The corrosion process is initiated and accelerated when deicing chemicals, used extensively during winter maintenance, penetrate through the cracks and reach...

Long-Life Composite Pavement Systems

The Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP 2) R21 project on Composite Pavement Systems is under the Renewal area of SHRP 2, the goal of which is to develop a consistent, systematic approach to performing highway renewal that is rapid, causes minimum disruption,...

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...

Efforts to Improve the Life of Concrete Pavements in Virginia

The Virginia Department of Transportation has been active in improving the service life of concrete pavements in new construction and repairs. Several new technologies and practices have been successfully tried in the past decade. This paper addresses recent developments in design, materials, and construction...

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...
