CONCRETE IN TRANSPORTATION. RECONSTRUCTING ALLEYS WITH PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE
During the 1985 construction season, the city of Mountain Home, Idaho, reconstructed alleys in the downtown business district. Because of deterioration, the asphalt alleys had become extremely difficult to maintain and were a safety hazard to both motorists and pedestrians. In the planning stage, two paving alternatives were evaluated: portland cement concrete pavement (PCCP) and asphaltic concrete pavement (ACP). The city's engineering department concluded that PCCP had several advantages over ACP in alleyway construction.
