PERFORMANCE OF A CONTINUOSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE OVERLAY. FINAL REPORT
The four-and-one-half-year performance of a 6-inch CRC overlay placed on two different underlying materials and a contiguous 8-inch CRC lane newly constructed for purposes of widening is assessed. The design of the pavement incorporates nonaligned longitudinal joints between the old and new concrete. Transverse crack widths and spacings are determined for the various pavement lanes. Longitudinal cracking is assessed and a description of all types of defects is given. Conclusions are drawn and recommendations formulated on the basis of observation and condition surveys.
