Project description

This project will evaluate the feasibility of expanding current specifications in sustainable concrete paving applications with the goal of producing guidelines for optimized concrete mix design. This study will provide WisDOT with information on the beneficial use of sustainable, blended cementitious systems capable of improving concrete performance. The specifications of new pavement mixtures can provide WisDOT with savings that include more cost-effective designs, more effective use of materials, and overall longer pavement life.
