Abstract:
State and local agencies are spending millions of dollars annually to repair and replace portland cement concrete pavements. Much of the money is being spent on improvement and repair projects that require work to be repeated at spot locations in less than 24 hr. Information on the relative effectiveness of the various rapid-repair techniques to replace full-depth, full-lane width segments of pavement is needed. Data were collected and analyzed to support the importance of high-quality workmanship.
