Connecticut practice in the construction of concretepavements has seen many changes both in design and methods of construction. Since ‘the earlv twenties coarse and fine aggregates of good quality have been readily available. The use of a gravel or stone base under the pavement, and also the-minimum amount of water necessary for workability of the concrete has had much to do with the relatively good condition of the pavement concrete. Expansion joints and fillers in many cases have proved disappointing. Experience to date indicates that the use of vibrators with mixes of the proper consistency will improve the quality and durability of pavement concrete.
