Fully cured jointed precast concrete paving slabs provide many advantages over materials currently used for rapid repair of concrete pavement. When you need a more durable, long-lasting, versatile rapid repair that can be installed in nearly any type of weather, the solution is jointed precast concrete pavement.
Precast Concrete Jointed Pavement slabs are fully cured prior to delivery to the job site, so the repaired road can be opened to traffic immediately upon installation. It’s ready to go when installed. Repairs can be performed at night and/or after the morning rush, and the lane can be reopened with minimal disruption to traffic flow.
And it’s not just flat surfaces. Precast Concrete Jointed Pavement can be designed for a myriad of applications such as horizontal curves, three-dimensional surfaces, intersections, changing crown lines, utility-intensive pavement, instrumented applications, heavily-skewed bridge approach slabs as well as for airfield runways and taxiways. Jointed slabs may be used singularly for isolated repairs or in multiples, to create a continuous surface of new pavement. Advanced technology in precast concrete operations and equipment makes is possible to design and place three-dimensional pavement as encountered in intersections and super-elevation transitions.
The vast majority of the concrete pavement in existence today is jointed. Precast Concrete Jointed Pavement slabs installed in an existing jointed concrete pavement structure retain the expansion and contraction characteristics of the surrounding existing pavement, making it a logical choice of precast repair for existing jointed pavements.

Precast concrete paving systems (PCPS) are built to last and install fast!
Here, the steps taken to install a PCPS are detailed, from the removal of distressed roadway to the placement of precast slabs.

The National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) was a Gold Level sponsor at the 10th International Conference on Concrete Pavements in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, July 8-12, 2012. The focus of the conference was to present information on new technologies related to the design, construction and rehabilitation of various types of concrete pavements.
The conference targeted pavement, materials, and geotechnical engineering professionals who are involved in all aspects of concrete pavement design, construction, testing and evaluation, and rehabilitation. Professionals in attendance included federal, state and municipal engineers; consulting engineers; contractors; materials suppliers; and academia.
At the conference, NPCA sponsored a four hour seminar titled “Precast Concrete Pavement: View Points from Practitioners and Visionaries.” The seminar was focused on jointed precast concrete pavement technology. The seminar touched on the following topics:
List of Speakers:
Moderator: Denis Thebeau – Ministry of Transportation of Quebec
Ernie Barrenberg – A Historical and Future Perspective
Neeraj Buch – Professor and Interim Chairperson at Michigan State U. An Overview of RO5 – An International Perspective
Tom Kazmierowski – Ministry of Transportation of Ontario MTO Perspective on precast Concrete Pavement in Ontario
