With over 4 million miles of roadways in the United States, pavement maintenance and construction represents a significant portion of federal and state funding for infrastructure. Compounding these financial burdens are the significant indirect costs to users during construction. The present study aims at applying cost-effective concrete materials for rapid pavement construction. The main idea is to utilize high performance concrete that is being developed in another project of Research on Concrete Applications for Sustainable Transportation (RE-CAST) Center in accelerated pavement construction.
