The Feasibility of Using Precast Concrete Panels to Expedite Highway Pavement Construction
Primary Topic: Pavement Construction
Description: This report describes a method for expediting highway pavement construction through the use of precast concrete panels. Precast concrete panels can be assembled quickly, allowing traffic back onto the pavement almost immediately. This will allow pavement construction to be carried out in overnight or weekend operations, when traffic volumes are low, resulting in tremendous savings in user costs.
