Concrete for a large light-rail infrastructure project in the Northwest region of the United States was proposed to be switched from using ordinary portland cement to portland limestone cement (PLC). The article presents research performed to verify that the design requirement of a 100-year service life for the structure can be obtained with PLC concretes containing Class F fly ash.
