TechBrief: Long-Life Concrete Pavements: Best Practices and Directions from the States

Primary Topic: Pavement Design

Description: The International Conference on Long-Life Concrete Pavements was organized in October 2006 as a part of technology transfer activities for the Concrete Pavement Technology Program (CPTP), which operates within the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) (Tayabji and Lim 2006). The conference objective was to provide a forum to address various aspects of concrete pavement design, construction, and materials technologies that result in long life for concrete pavements. Several State departments of transportation (DOTs) participated in the conference and presented information related to their current practices and future directions for achieving long-life concrete pavements. This TechBrief summarizes the long-life concrete pavement practices presented by the Illinois, Minnesota, Texas, and Washington State DOTs, practices that are representative of directions implemented by States that have strong concrete pavement construction programs.
