DENVER UPGRADES ARTERIAL STREETS, INTERSECTIONS TO RIGID PAVEMENT

Denver, Colorado, is upgrading intersections and arterial streets with portland cement concrete. The choice of concrete comes after reviewing the applicability of asphalt, which seems less appropriate in light of rutting and shoving by buses and trucks in narrow lanes. The article defines high early strength concrete and discusses its advantages, particularly for "decorative" intersections. Measures to prevent salt corrosion are noted due to the high incidence of snow in this region.
