Construction and design features of the experimental continuously reinforced concrete pavement placed in Illinois in 1947 are described. The performance of the pavement up to an age of about four years is assessed with stresses in the the longitudinal steel, frequency and width of transverse cracks, localizd failures and general condition of the pavement being discussed. Economic possiblites of this type of pavement are not considered because of insufficient service life.
