Researchers at the University of California-Berkeley have documented a remarkable reconstruction project on Interstate 10 in California: 2.8 lane-km of concrete pavement was replaced in 55 hours over one weekend. The rehabilitation project used fast-track concrete with 4-hour curing time and two different construction windows: one 55-hour weekend lane closure and a series of repeated nighttime closures of 7 and 10 hours. The average production rates showed that weekend closures were 55% more productive than nighttime closures. The overall progress of the project was found not to be controlled by the demolition activities. Concrete delivery to the site was found to be the constraining factor.
