Title: Cost and Value of Concrete Pavements
Author(s): J.H. Chubb
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 356-369
Abstract:Concrete, one of the oldest and most valuable of the materials of construction, has been used for years as the base of foundation for pavements having some form of brick, block or asphalt wearing surface, but it was not until in comparatively recent years, or until practically everything else had been tried, that this material was used throughout in the construction of street pavements. Just why engineers and those dealing with the perplexing paving problems have been so slow in recognizing the value of this material for wearing surfaces is not known, but the fact remains that, in this country at least, it was not until 1893 that a pavement with a concrete wearing surface-a true concrete pavement-was constructed.
