Do you need a pavement repair system that will install fast to mitigate traffic congestion but also stand the test of time? Precast concrete pavement systems are prefabricated offsite in controlled conditions and delivered to the job site fully cured and ready to be installed during low-traffic periods. Drivers can then return to those very roads almost immediately following installation.
PCPS can be designed for 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.
When you need a more durable, long-lasting rapid repair that can be installed in nearly any type of weather, the solution is PCPS.

Manual for Jointed Precast Concrete Pavement
Working with two leading precast concrete pavement practitioners, NPCA’s Precast Concrete Paving Slabs Product Committee has published a comprehensive technical manual on jointed precast concrete pavement. The manual offers wide-ranging information and guidance for precast concrete manufacturers, designers, project owners and installers. Topics addressed include:
- Shop drawing preparation
- Installation details for all systems
- Project execution
- Maintenance of completed installations
Please note that the manual is a living document and will be updated on a continual basis.
