Repair and Preventative Maintenance Procedures for Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement

General Interest: provides practical guidance to engineers responsible for the day-to-day design, construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, and management of pavements. Research/Reference: useful for researchers doing further work in the pavement area as well as those developing improved testing and design procedures. Includes documents of historical value.

Primary Topic: Pavement Maintenance

Description: Procedures for permanently patching and for pressure grouting of continuously reinforced concrete pavement have been developed. These procedures have been extensively field tested to ensure their practicality and adequacy. The patching procedures reduce costs and lane closure time by considering the different distress types, different methods of construction, and concrete additive and curing for early opening. The pressure grouting procedures provide for a restoration of support beneath the slab and the prevention of future pumping.
