Abstract

Several road construction projects involving concrete overlays at the state and county levels in Iowa in 2009 were studied for construction techniques and methods. The projects that were evaluated consisted of sites in four Iowa counties: Osceola, Worth, Poweshiek, and Johnson counties. The construction techniques and methods that were studied included concrete overlays and material usage. By evaluating these methods, highway agencies can explore different ways of making road construction less costly and can minimize the amount of time that the traveling public is exposed to road construction.
