RCC (111,333 cubic yards) was selected in lieu of asphalt pavement for heavy and medium loading conditions for a new container yard. The project consists of 101,000 square yards of 16” RCC pavement and 299,000 square yards of 8” RCC pavement. The decision to utilize RCC in lieu of asphalt not only expedited the project schedule but also saved the client in excess of $1M on an initial cost basis.
