The Concrete Solution for Streets and Roads

The fast, safe and reliable transportation of people and goods is dependent on durable, low maintenance streets and roads. Concrete pavements consistently achieve this high level of performance and most often have the lowest total ownership costs because they require less maintenance. In addition, concrete streets and roads have a long history of exceptional environmental performance.

Benefits of Using Concrete for Streets and Roads

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