Fibrous Concrete Resurfacing Greene County, Iowa

The three miles of fibrous concrete resurfacing in Greene County, Iowa were placed in September and early October, 1973. It was recognized in advance that cracking and other performance characteristics of the fibrous concrete sections and of the control sections would be major factors in the evaluation of the project. A low level aerial survey was made of the old pavement. During construction of the resurfacing, the aerial survey was checked to insure that cracks in the old pavement were referenced to the 100 ft. station marks placed in the resurfacing. Crack surveys have been conducted on these dates: April, 1974; November, 1974; October, 1975; October, 1976; and October, 1977. Additional cracks found at each subsequent survey are shown in a color matching the date notation.
