The Concrete Solution for Highways

While concrete highway pavement has many advantages, it is known best for superior durability and long life. This durability aspect translates to fewer maintenance and construction related road delays, as well as lower life-cycle costs. Concrete pavements have an average service life of 30 to 50 years. In California, where vehicle traffic has grown beyond expectations, many concrete highways are exceeding their design life well beyond 50 years.

Benefits of Using Concrete for Highways

Vehicles traveling on concrete highways use less fuel because the rolling resistance is much lower than that of other paving materials.
Concrete highways are naturally light-reflective which reduces lighting requirements saving energy and providing a safer nighttime environment.
