TechBriefs Highlight Precast Concrete Pavement for Rapid Repairs

Two TechBriefs developed by the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Concrete Pavement Technology Program (CPTP) highlight the innovative use of precast concrete pavement technology to meet the need for rapid pavement repair, rehabilitation, and construction:

Precast Concrete Panels for Repair and Rehabilitation of Jointed Concrete Pavements discusses the use of precast pavement systems that can be fabricated or assembled off site, transported to the project location, and installed on a prepared foundation. The system components require little or no field curing to achieve strength before the road is opened to traffic.

Precast Prestressed Concrete Pavement for Reconstruction and Rehabilitation of Existing Pavementsdescribes the development of precast prestressed concrete pavement (PPCP) technology and provides recommendations for ensuring the successful installation of a precast system, including design, panel...
