Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements have given excellent service history for Iowa. The first concrete pavement was placed in Le Mars in 1904 and was in service until 1968. The Eddyville Cemetery Road placed in 1909 is still in service today. Many other pavements placed during the 1920s and 1930s are still in service today. The objective of this report is to document various changes in specifications, pavement design and equipment for PCC paving from the early 1900s to present. This includes changes that were made to the specification book and supplemental specifications. Where possible, information is given as a basis for the change in specifications.
