Concrete Overlays: It is no secret that counties, cities, and towns must do more with less. Of course, this makes roadway preservation and construction even more challenging than ever, but there are solutions to this challenge. You may be surprised to learn that concrete pavements can provide some affordable solutions. All pavements eventually will need to be resurfaced, repaired, or replaced, but concrete pavements are increasingly being used for pavement preservation and rehabilitation strategies. Concrete overlays can help preserve and rehabilitate existing systems, and can be used to extend the life of existing asphalt, concrete, or composite pavements.
