FOUR CONCRETE OVERLAY METHODS TESTED FOR STREET RESURFACING

To find a low cost long-lasting surface for existing streets, the city of Anderson, Indiana, has built a test section comparing several types of resurfacing using ready mixed concrete. The four different test sections are: 4 in. of concrete over polyethylene film; 4 in. of concrete placed directly on old pavement that has been broken up; 3 in. of concrete over old pavement using wire mesh; 4 in. of concrete over old pavement using impregnated paper strips to isolate existing cracks.
