This article describes best practices for concrete pavement repair (CPR). Salt related deterioration, a lack of preventative maintenance, and traffic accelerated surface failures are determined to be major reasons why CPR is required. The article discusses the four major methods for CPR identified in the guidelines for CPR: full-depth repair, partial-depth repair, crack repair, and seal repair with joint resealing. Distress type and severity are used to evaluate the area of repair. A comprehensive concrete pavement repair program in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is used as an example where CPR was implemented. Project solutions included the use of deicing materials, proper sealing and maintenance, and implementing the four repair methods. Slab stabilization and dowel bar retrofit are cited as last resorts for increased traffic load repair methods.
