PERFORMANCE STUDY OF CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENT ON I-95

The study evaluates the performance of the continuously reinforced concrete pavement on I-95. Pavement observations and measurements were made on twelve construction contracts and included intensive crack surveys, measurements of the widths of selected cracks, measurements of changes of width of terminal joints and expansion joints, road roughness, present serviceability index (PSI) determinations, and skid resistance. This interim report presents the results of observations and measurements made during the first year of the study. Pavement design and construction details for the construction contracts are also presented. No definite conclusions are made, but generally the continuously reinforced concrete pavement on I-95 has performed as expected during three years of service.
