16. Abstract

This report documents the construction of a precast prestressed concrete pavement demonstration project on Interstate 10 in El Monte, California. This work was conducted under a new effort by the Federal Highway Administration to further evaluate and refine precast prestressed pavement technology through the construction of additional demonstration projects. All aspects of the California demonstration project are presented, including the design, panel fabrication, pavement construction, and instrumentation and monitoring. An evaluation of each of these aspects is also discussed. This project represents the first of three demonstration projects to be constructed under this effort.
