Longest Lasting Pavement System
Concrete makes the most durable pavement system available. Concrete Roads, Highways, Bridges, and Industrial Site pavements can last more than 50 years .
Safety/Stronger Rut Resistant
Concrete is a rigid paving system. As a result it will not warp or rut from intense use or intense heat. This makes driving on concrete safer.
Because concrete pavements are stronger, and recover faster from disasters, these roads help deliver critical supplies to those in need without needing to wait for repairs.
Increased Fuel Efficiency
Concrete increases fuel efficiency by 3-7% for semi trucks (saving 40 gals/1000 mi. driven). There are similar savings in cars and light duty trucks.
Reflects More Light
Concrete has a high level of light reflectivity, making it safer to drive on at night. During the day, heat and light are reflected reducing urban heat islands.
Concrete is produced locally, with local labor, supporting local communities, which is great for the economy.
Concrete is fully recyclable, more than 140 million tons of concrete are recycled and reused every year.
Smooth & Quiet
Concrete textures are engineered to stay smooth and quiet throughout a pavement’s life. This enables a better and safer grip and touch point for vehicle tires.
