CONSTRUCTION OF CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

The use of continuously reinforced concrete (CRC) pavement, as an alternative that eliminates the necessity for most crack control joints, has a proven record of good service performance extending back more than 30 years. CRC pavement is a portland cement concrete pavement with continuous longitudinal reinforcement achieved by lapping the reinforcing bars. The construction practices treated in this manual encompass activities that influence the performance of CRC pavement including subgrade, subbase, drainage construction practices, construction joints, terminal joints, ramps and shoulders, and other details.
