Two projects in 2012 were let with alternate bids for roller compacted concrete (RCC) pavement by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). TxDOT's new special RCC pavement specification pioneers its use with for many TxDOT applications.
The first placement of RCC is planned for later this year at two new safety rest stops along I-20 in Eastland County for TxDOT's Brownwood District. The other proposed application for service road replacement along I-20 in the City of Abilene for TxDOT's Abilene District was awarded to the competing alternate design.
The Cement Council of Texas continues to work closely with Texas cities, counties and TxDOT to incorporate this economical, fast-track concrete pavement technology into pavement arsenals. If you have questions regarding RCC pavement applications, design or construction, don't hesitate to call us at CCT.

The Cementx Pavement Blog seeks to make pavement owners, engineers and contractors smarter about selecting, designing, constructing and maintaining pavements. New blog postings began February 1, 2017; however, we carried over pavement-related blog postings from our older blog, the "Texas Cement and Concrete Blog," which ran until December 2016.
