INSTRUMENTATION AND EVALUATION OF PRESTRESSED PAVEMENT SECTION IN PENNSYLVANIA

During 1988 and 1989, a 3.2-km (2-mi) section of a prestressed pavement was constructed in Blair County, Pennsylvania as part of a new roadway along U.S. 220. In conjunction with the construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation sponsored a study to instrument the prestressed pavement. Instrumentation was installed to monitor concrete strains, slab horizontal and vertical movements, and response of the pavement under truck loading. This paper provides the details of the pavement instrumentation program and a summary of the data collected.
