City of Chattanooga Senior Engineer Ariel Soriano suggested that Stone and the City of Chattanooga consider using Roller-Compacted Concrete, more commonly known as RCC. Courtesy of Southeast Cement Promotion Association.
The roller compacted concrete was placed in 1986, this 2002 study evaluates the long term performance of this project.
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.

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has placed thousands of square yards of roller-compacted concrete (RCC) over the past several years, including on Georgia interstate shoulders.
