16. Abstract

State Highway Agencies are continually seeking new techniques for expedited pavement construction that will permit reconstruction and rehabilitation of existing pavements with minimal impact on the traveling public. Precast prestressed concrete pavement (PPCP) is one such technique which has been demonstrated in recent years to meet this need. Precast panels can be produced well in advance of construction, stockpiled, and hauled to the site for installation as needed. PPCP can be constructed during non-peak travel times, such as overnight or during weekend closures, in order to minimize lane closures and associated user delays.

This report documents the construction of a PPCP demonstration project on Interstate 57 Near Sikeston, Missouri. This work was conducted under an effort by FHWA to help familiarize State Highway Agencies with PPCP technology through the construction of demonstration projects in various states. All aspects of the Missouri demonstration project are presented, including the design, panel fabrication, pavement construction, and performance and condition during the first year in service. An evaluation of each of these aspects is also discussed with recommendations for future projects.
