The use of cement and concrete in resurfacing, restoration, and rehabilitation of existing pavements is discussed. The use of cement to stabilize failed flexible pavements on light-traffic roads and to recycle old concrete as subbase or concrete pavement in a new highway is described and illustrated by specific recent examples. The rehabilitation of concrete through the installation of edge drains and concrete shoulders where necessary to improve drainage and reduce slab edge deflections is included. The restoration of concrete pavements through the use of slabjacking or sub-sealing, patching, and grooving and grinding to improve riding qualities and restore adequate skid resistance is presented. Concrete overlays or resurfacing to provide additional structural strength or improve serviceability are described, including concrete overlays on both old bituminous pavements and old concrete pavements.
