Repair and Preventative Maintenance Procedures for Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement
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.
