Tech Brief: Overview of Precast Concrete Pavement in the United States
Primary Topic: Materials-Concrete
Description: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has developed extensive resources for the use of precast concrete pavement (PCP) technology. PCP has gained wide acceptance in the United States (see Figure 1) for rapid and long-lasting repair and rehabilitation of concrete pavements; for the reconstruction of access/exit ramps; for replacement of heavilytrafficked asphalt ramps, intersections, and bus pads; and for numerous other applications in which short work-windows and long-life pavement performance are desired.
