PAVING A HALF-MILE PER NIGHT IN GEORGIA : FAST-TRACKED PROJECT OPENS CONCRETE TO TRAFFIC IN A FEW HOURS

This article describes a fast-tracked concrete paving project on a 14.7 mile stretch of Interstate 75 near Macon, Georgia, in which traffic was allowed to travel on newly paved surface four to six hours after paving took place. 20.1 lane miles of concrete pavement were removed and replaced in 16 weeks, with road closures taking place every night for about 12 hours. The Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) found that by having a higher cement content and adding a non-chloride accelerator to the pavement mix, the high early strength enabled the roadway to be opened up earlier to traffic.
