High Performance Precast Pavement Systems

Precast/prestressed concrete pavement (PPCP) systems offer many advantages relative to traditional systems. They are manufactured offsite in controlled environment producing a high degree of quality. PPCP is installed quickly reducing construction time and inconvenience to motorists.

Precast is Efficient

Accelerated Construction - Precast/prestressed concrete pavement (PPCP) systems offer many advantages relative to traditional systems. They are manufactured offsite in controlled environment producing a high degree of quality. PPCP is installed quickly reducing construction time and inconvenience to motorists.

Reduce Life Cycle Costs – Precast does not rot, rust, degrade in the presence of sunlight or water, or require painting in most applications. Precast concrete systems are very durable and help reduce overall life-cycle costs.

Precast is Resilient

Long Service life - Precast concrete is a very durable material that can provide a service life of 100 years. Precast is manufactured in a controlled environment with a high-degree of quality control and low water-cementitious ratios. This results in high compressive strength concrete with low permeability and provides for long-term durability.

Sustainable Construction – Precast is manufactured offsite reducing negative environmental effects. Precast often contains recycled materials, and can be recycled at the end f its useful service life.

Precast is Versatile

Structural Versatility – PPCP panels are generally provided in sizes to match the width of one, two, or three lanes of the pavement. This permits one or multiple lanes of an existing pavement to be reconstructed at one time, depending on site clearance constraints.

The precast panels are commonly oriented perpendicular to the roadway centerline, and may also include one or both shoulders.
