This project installed steel "dowel bars" between the existing concrete panels on northbound US 195. In addition, the concrete surface was smoothed out with a diamond grinder and a number of broken concrete panels were replaced. This pavement was installed in the 1960's and the panels moved over that time, creating a rough roadway. A number of the panels had broken and required replacement.
| Economic Incentive
This work extended the life of the existing concrete and asphalt pavement, preserving the investment in the roadway.
