Project description

The purpose of this project is to: (1) Evaluate the laboratory and field performance of several precast and Cast In-Place (CIP) rapid Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavement rehabilitation technologies or systems; (2) Establish a performance criteria for evaluating and approving precast and CIP systems under full-scale accelerated testing conditions applied using a Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS); (3) Develop a system/material approval procedure (MAP) which incorporates the performance criteria developed (previous goal) and populate NJDOT’s qualified products list (QPL) to include the best performing systems/materials; and (4) Develop system/material-specific specifications that will ensure success of selected materials.
