The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has established a comprehensive system of repairs for portland cement concrete pavements known as concrete pavement restoration--or CPR. CPR uses repair techniques and combinations of techniques to halt pavement deterioration. Some of the techniques are slab jacking, retrofit edge drains, slab replacement, undersealing, and diamond grinding. The number of techniques used depends on the deterioration of the road. This article explains how the GDOT began monitoring roads and incorporating CPR. Knowledge gained since the late 1970s has helped GDOT improve and refine its CPR efforts. The Federal Highway Administration has cited Georgia as the state with the smoothest concrete roads, based upon rideability.
