Evaluation and Implementation of Improved CRCP and JPCP Design Methods for Illinois

With the recent release of the Mechanistic-Empirical (M-E)Pavement Design Guide (DG2002), many states are evaluating its applicability against their existing design methods. IDOT already has an existing jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) design based on M-E principles. However, IDOT does not have an M-E based continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) design procedure. The objectives of the study are to refine the JPCP design method based on new findings from the past 15 years and to develop and implement a CRCP design process that IDOT can use for routine design.
