Distribution/trucking facilities typically have large pavement areas in order to provide adequate container/freight storage. These pavements must have the capacity to carry heavy loads while still being economical on an initial cost basis and durable enough to limit long-term maintenance cost. Roller-Compacted Concrete (RCC) pavements…
The I-20/I-59 Interchange with McAshan Drive is a busy diamond interchange. McAshan Drive has significant heavy truck traffic to Norfolk Southern’s Intermodal rail to truck facility, as well as an active truck stop. The project included 9,726 square yards of RCC, which was used to…

The objectives of the study were to determine the structural performance and load carrying capacity of thin RCC surfaced pavements under accelerated pavement testing (APT), and to determine the applicability of using a thin RCC pavement structure with cement treated or stabilized base as a design alternative for those low volume roadways having frequently heavy truck trafficking.

Because RCC does not rut or shove as large trucks stop, start and turn, the length of life for the pavement as well as less maintenance costs added to the benefits for the RCC interstate exchange. Source: ACPA, Concrete Pavement Progress, Qtr. 3, 2018
Starting in 2004, the Georgia DOT (GDOT) experimented with the use of roller-compacted concrete (RCC) as a shouldering, turn-lane, and median material on I-285 and SR-6, two high-volume routes in the Atlanta area. Learn more about Georgia RCC Shoulders
