WIDENING AND RESURFACING HIGHWAYS WITH CONCRETE

THIS PAPER COVERS A REVIEW OF OVER 100 MILES OF CONCRETE RESURFACING WORK DONE IN IOWA DURING THE PERIOD 1931 THROUGH 1954 WITH A CONDITION REPORT ON SOME OF THE OLDEST PROJECTS. IT INCLUDES A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SLAB SECTION AND THE REINFORCING STEEL OF BOTH THE ORIGINAL PAVEMENT AND THE RESURFACING ON SOME FORTY-FIVE PROJECTS. IT SUGGESTS THAT THE PRESENT CONDITION AND THE SERVICE RECORDS OF THESE PROJECTS TOGETHER WITH THE PERFORMANCE UNDER HEAVY TRAFFIC OF THOSE AT LEAST TWENTY YEARS OLD INDICATE THE PRACTICALITY OF CONCRETE RESURFACING FOR MODERNIZING OLD PAVEMENTS. /AUTHOR/
