A STUDY OF CRCP PERFORMANCE: NEW CONSTRUCTION VS. OVERLAY

This report documents the performance of several continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP) in Texas. Specifically, it involves a comparison of the performances of CRCP overlays and new CRCP construction for three projects: I35-2(45)175, located in Guadalupe County, I35-4(13)317, located in Falls and McLennan Counties (a two county project), and I35W-5(44)401, located in Johnson County. These projects were constructed by the Texas State Department of Highways and Transportation and each includes overlay and new construction built side by side. This report documents condition surveys performed on these pavements in 1975-76. The study compares observed performances of CRCP overlays and new CRCP and reports findings and trends. While the findings are far from conclusive, they can be useful for improving future designs.
