FREEWAY SLAB REPLACEMENTS CARRY TRAFFIC SAME DAY

In only 7 hours, a contractor crew set traffic control, removed and replaced failed concrete slabs, and reopened the new rigid pavement to Interstate traffic. New fast-setting Portland cement was the key to the fast-paced I-15 project near Ogden, Utah. The 20-working-day, $129,000 contract called for replacing 500 sq yd of pavement and "stitching" nearly a mile of longitudinal joints and cracks. At least two of the three lanes in each direction had to be maintained during weekday and Saturday rush hours, and night work was not permitted. This article briefly describes the construction methods and equipment employed on the project.
