Description: The Advanced Concrete Pavement Technology (ACPT) Program is an integrated, national effort to improve the long-term performance and cost-effectiveness of the Nations concrete highways. Managed by the Federal Highway Administration through partnerships with State highway agencies, industry, and academia, the goals of the ACPT Program are to reduce congestion, improve safety, lower costs, improve performance, and foster innovation. The ACPT Program was developed to identify, refine, and deliver for implementation the available technologies from all sources that can enhance the design, construction, repair, and rehabilitation of the Nations concrete highways.
This report documents the availability of advanced concrete pavement technology products that show a high potential for improving the performance of concrete pavements through improved design, material selection, construction practices, testing procedures, and repair and rehabilitation techniques. These technologies also include concrete overlays for rehabilitation of existing concrete and asphalt pavements. The ACPT products for technology transfer, as documented in this report, are the result of research and development projects with various sponsors, both domestic and international.
