Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) - Executive Brief
Primary Topic: Rigid Pavement
Description: Continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) provides long-life performance with minimal maintenance at a competitive cost. CRCP contains continuous longitudinal steel reinforcement and has no transverse joints, except as required at end-of-day construction and at bridge approaches and transitions to other pavement structures. Continuous reinforcement is a mechanism for managing the transverse cracking that occurs in all new concrete pavements.
