Highlights the publications (print and online), education, demonstration, and outreach conducted over the five-year period in which the project was dedicated to accelerated implementation and development of concrete pavement technologies.
Guidebook for an FHWA Office of Pavement Technology-sponsored project that explored the possibilities, pitfalls, and practical considerations for the use of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) in pavement construction to provide a more sustainable concrete pavement option for state and local agencies.
Final report for an Office of Pavement Technology-sponsored guidebook that assists local and state concrete pavement managers in the development of a concrete overlay project by offering in-depth information on construction drawings, specifications, costs, and design challenges to consider during the process.
Final guide for nonwoven geotextile fabric used as a separation layer to prevent cracks and other distresses in the underlying pavement from compromising the performance of a new unbonded jointed concrete overlay over existing jointed and continuously reinforced concrete pavements
40-page guide to provide a resource for pavement owners, designers, and contractors to design and construct successful thin concrete overlays as a longer-term preservation solution for concrete pavements with prematurely deteriorating joints
145-page guide to fill the knowledge gap about concrete overlays so that pavement owners can confidently include concrete overlays in their toolbox of pavement solutions and make more informed decisions about designing and constructing them
A pocket reference guide was developed to deliver key information in the field about real-time smoothness installation, daily startup and shutdown, and recommendations for maximizing the benefits of the technology.
Introductory technical brief that provides an overview of the uses of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) in a variety of pavement applications, offers guidance on RCA properties, summarizes past uses of RCA under various conditions, and makes recommendations for practitioners on production, concrete pavement mixtures, and structural design using RCA.
A Technical Brief in the Concrete Pavement Recycling Series that describes qualification requirements, design techniques, and construction considerations for the unbound recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) shouldering materials that are being used more frequently by some states for the economic and environmental benefits.
Technical brief that provides a summary of the potential environmental impacts of concrete pavement recycling that can occur during construction, including those associated with water quality, air quality, local effects, and waste generation, along with a summary of planning, layout, and construction controls
Technical brief that provides a summary of the potential water quality impacts of concrete pavement recycling, along with a summary of mitigation strategies that can be addressed during project planning and design
A set of sample documents for PCC overlay projects on unbonded and bonded PCC pavements covers many segments of potential projects using maps, diagrams, and cross section charts, along with details related to jointing, staking, staging, guardrail and paved shoulders, quantity material needs, right turn and bridge approach aspects, and profiles of existing roadway features.
