Concrete Overlays

Concrete Overlays are an excellent paving solution for extending the life of a highway or road. It enables us to take advantage of the investment/equity already made in the existing roadway. By putting a concrete layer on top of the existing roadway, we are looking towards sustainability, it can be designed to last for anywhere from 5-40 years. The video below gives a quick overview on overlays.
Concrete can be used over a concrete road or an asphalt road. The two main questions to ask are – What is the current condition of the road; and second, what is the desired service life of the concrete overlay. ​

The ACPA supports communities and states by helping assess and develop an effective road network build and maintain plan. To learn more about overlays, select a button below. You’ll be taken to a resource or asked to provide some simple information to download a publication.
