Concrete Overlays Manual 4th Edition Now Available

The CP Tech Center has just released it’s 4th edition of the ever popular Guide to Concrete Overlays. This guide is a must have for anyone planning, designing or constructing concrete overlays. From the most experienced engineers to the less experienced team member, this guide will arm you with the knowledge necessary to have a successful concrete overlay project.

Updates from the previous edition include current information on continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) overlays, geotextile separation layers, fiber reinforcement, concrete overlay design procedures, and lessons learned from the experiences of numerous state highway agency engineers. 

Whatever pavement type you are dealing with, a concrete overlay may be the solution you are looking for. Many concrete overlays provide extended life for old pavements for as much as 10, 20 or even 30 years! Download your copy today!
