Abstract:

The results from inspection trips to five construction sites where portland cement concrete PCC pavements were being constructed and one site where a porous friction course was being constructed are reported. The pavements at these sites were being constructed under Corps of Engineers supervision in accordance with job specifications. Construction procedures, job specifications, and inspection and testing procedures were observed to determine if they were compatible with current Corps of Engineers paving specifications. Discussions were held with project personnel to obtain their opinions regarding how Corps of Engineers guide specifications MCGS 02611 and standard practices manual TM 5-822-7 could be revised to improve compatibility with current construction technology for PCC pavements, and how to develop guide specifications and standard practice procedure for porous friction courses. Recommendations were made based on technical considerations. Author
