Continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP) are heavy-duty pavements suitable for use in high-volume, heavy-truck traffic facilities, and are increasingly being employed by a number of highway agencies because of their long performance lives and low maintenance requirements. This session will present information on the design, construction, and performance of CRCP, with an emphasis on key factors that contribute to their effective performance. The information presented in this session will be of interest to design and construction engineers and others responsible for the management of highway pavement networks.
(1) Describe important factors in the design and construction of continuously reinforced concrete pavements;
(2) Describe the general performance capabilities of continuously reinforced concrete pavements;
(3) Describe methods for maintaining and rehabilitation continuously reinforced concrete pavements;
(4) Describe recent research and innovations for continuously reinforced concrete pavements.
