LIGHT-TRAFFIC ROADS OF CONCRETE

Knowledge gained from slipforming heavy-duty concrete airport and primary road pavements has been applied to slipforming thin-concrete pavements for secondary and county roads carrying low volumes and light weights of traffic. Studies show that at low volumes of traffic there are few heavy multiaxle trucks in the traffic stream. Several thickness-design procedures are compared, and the serviceability index design model is discussed. Jointing and construction practices are summarized, noting that transverse joint intervals in light-traffic pavements vary from 15 to 20 ft up to 40 ft. A major survey shows that performance of thin-concrete county and secondary road pavement is good.
