Performance of a Portland Cement Concrete Pavement

Description: This report describes the construction of a portland cement concrete pavement built with three finishing methods; carpet drag, longitudinal tining, and transverse tining. The three finishing methods will be compared for their ability to resist the wear from studded tires. Ride and friction resistance will also be monitored and reported over the five year evaluation period.
