This study quantifies the environmental influences on early age response of PCC pavement. Two adjacent slabs located in the driving lane of west bound I-490 in Rochester, New York, were instrumented to monitor concrete temperature and strain, and pavement deformation. Immediately after slab placement, readings from temperature, strain and displacement sensors were taken continuously for 48 hours. Additionally, in the sixth week after placement a twenty-four hour cycle was investigated.
