This project consisted of 8” RCC for a tractor trailer parking lot for a VDOT rest area in Richmond, VA. Although the layout was oblong in shape, traditionally not ideal for RCC pavement, however Roller Compacted Concrete was selected due to the cost savings in comparison to PCC with wire.  VDOT expected the project to take up to 20 days to complete, but Robert Smith Inc. was able to expedite the project schedule and complete all paving within 12 days. The cement, low alkali per VDOT spec, was supplied by Argos from their Newport News terminal.
