Project description

Experimental Feature monitoring of the installed Steel Fiber Reinforced Rubberized Concrete (SFRRC) installed summer 2017 on Abbot Road in Anchorage, AK. This project will monitor and collect pavement data for 3 years post-construction. Specifically, material wear, operations, and pavement condition compared to control sites. At the end of the evaluation period, a synopsis will be provided that includes recommendations on the use of SFRRC in Alaska. It will also contain information concerning what pitfalls or construction maintenance issues to resolved with improved specifications, construction plans, and/or practices.
