GENERAL CONDITION SURVEY OF CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENT ON I-95. FINAL REPORT

The general condition of the continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) on I-95 between the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) and the Capital Beltway (I-495) was monitored for five years, 1981 through 1985. The study included visual ratings of the pavement condition and roughness, friction, and deflection measurements. The pavement performed satisfactorily during the study period indicating that the design is adequate for this type of construction. The terminal joints constructed with wide flange beams (12WF58) failed because the top flanges fatigued and broke from traffic impact load. Traffic volume has increased substantially since the opening of the roadway (1971).
