This article presents results of testing of concrete pavements constructed from mixtures with portland limestone cement (PLC) and portland cement (PC), manufactured from the same clinker in the same plant. Performance of these pavements after 3 to 4 years’ service in aggressive climates in Canada was evaluated and compared. Discussed test results include compressive strength, depth of carbonation, chloride permeability, and apparent chloride diffusion.
