DETERMINATION OF DESIRABLE FINISH FOR CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

The method of finishing concrete pavement can make a substantial contribution to skid resistance and thereby traffic safety. This study compares various burlap and broom finishes with plastic grooved surfaces. Skid resistance, serviceability, and vehicle noise were the main criteria for evaluation. It is concluded that a plastic grooved pavement can be constructed which will increase skid resistance with no reduction in serviceability and little increase in noise. Georgia specifications now require the procedure.
