"Real-World" Video Supports Case for Concrete Paving

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

A new "edgy" video which clearly demonstrates the superiority of concrete pavement is now available. Professionally-produced by the Portland Cement Association (PCA), the video shows an aerial view of a section of US-30 in Ohio where in 2004 one side of the highway was paved in asphalt and the other side paved in concrete. The intention was to discover which material provided the best return on investment. After 11 years, there is a clear breakdown of the asphalt pavement while the concrete pavement appears in excellent condition. The soil, contractor, length of road and weather conditions were identical while the durability was not. The clip is a real-world example of the superiority of concrete paving and may persuade lawmakers and local decision makers to choose concrete.

For more information, contact PCA’s Alpa Swinger or Ray McVeigh.
