Innovative Uses of Precast Concrete to Rehabilitate Rigid and Flexible Pavements

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Convention Center 2018
Thomas Kazmierowski, Golder Associates Inc., presiding
Sponsored by Section - Construction; Section - Pavements; Standing Committee on General and Emerging Pavement Design; Standing Committee on Design and Rehabilitation of Concrete Pavements; and Standing Committee on Concrete Pavement Construction and Rehabilitation

Precast concrete pavement (PCP) has gained international acceptance for rapid repair and rehab of rigid pavements, including high-volume flexible pavements and intersections. Many agencies have implemented PCP technology, and other agencies have constructed demonstration projects. This workshop presents a state-of-the-practice snapshot, with presentations on topics including PCP technology for intermittent repairs; continuous applications; flexible pavement rehab including precast inlay repairs; and replacement of ramps, intersections, and bus pads. The growth, evolution, and instrumentation of PCP rehabilitation techniques also will be addressed, along with highlights of new and innovative PCP rehabilitation solutions.
