PLASTIC (WIRE-COMBED) GROOVING OF A SLIP-FORMED CONCRETE RUNWAY OVERLAY AT PATRICK HENRY AIRPORT: AN INITIAL EVALUATION

A wire-comb technique is described for transversely grooving the surface of a freshly laid (plastic state) slip-formed concrete overlay installed at Patrick Henry Airport. This method of surface texturing yields better water drainage and pavement skid resistance than that obtained with an older conventional burlap drag concrete surface treatment installed on an adjacent portion of the runway.
