Description / Abstract:

This guide briefly discusses the construction of hydraulic cement concrete pavements for highways, streets, local roads, and airfields. Design issues are presented in the context of their impact on construction. Today, the slipform method of paving is preferred for roadway construction. This modern construction method is capable of producing a sustainable, high-quality, smooth pavement that can be placed quickly and economically. This guide will focus on pavement constructed using slipform methods; however, where appropriate, formed pavement construction practices are also discussed.

This guide is intended to serve as a reference for field project management, inspectors, and construction personnel by providing background information, illustrations of best practice, and information helpful in solving day-to-day jobsite problems. Designers and specification writers will also find the guide helpful in preparing contract documents and selecting construction methods that assure quality construction under normal jobsite conditions using established and proven practices. Regardless of the type of equipment used, quality construction depends, in large measure, on the skill of crews involved in the construction process and quality of materials used.
