Products and Applications
Concrete Pavements: While concrete pavements are best known as the riding surface for interstate highways, concrete is a durable, economical, and sustainable solution for state highways, rural roadways, residential and city streets, intersections, airstrips, intermodal facilities, military bases, parking lots, and more.

Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR): A recyling solution in which a deteriorated asphalt pavement and the underlying base materials are pulverized then mixed with cement and water to form a stabilized base course. An FDR road can be completed with either an asphalt or concrete surface layer. View or download a fact sheet.
Roller-Compacted Concrete (RCC): An ultra-tough, zero-slump unreinforced concrete with compressive strengths greater than 4,000 psi. Placed with asphalt pavers, RCC combines strength and durability with economy and ease of construction. View or download a fact sheet.
Cement-Modified Soil (CMS): A subbase solution that blends cement and water with native (in-situ) soils to improve soil properties. The engineered mix forms a weather-resistant work platform for construction operations and a stronger, permanent subgrade for enhanced pavement support and capacity. View or download a fact sheet.
Concrete Overlays: Many of the nation’s roads have outlived their design life and require maintenance strategies for cost-efficient repairs. Concrete overlays are placed on an existing concrete, asphalt, or composite pavements. This pavement solution is a cost-effective approach that can bring new life to streets and roads.

Cement-Treated Base (CTB): Cement-treated is a strong, frost-resistant base for a concrete or asphalt pavement wearing surface. CTB consists of native soils, gravels, or manufactured aggregates blended with prescribed quantities of cement and water. CTB can be mixed in-place with on-site soils or mixed in a central plant or pugmill. View or download a fact sheet.
Pervious Concrete: Pervious concrete allows rainwater to pass through it and percolate into the underlying soil. The pavement mimics natural groundcover by allowing filtered stormwater to recharge the ground water. The system helps minimize stormwater runoff and reduces or eliminates the need for on-site holding ponds. View or download a fact sheet.
