MnDOT Concrete Pavement Rehab Program


Concrete Pavement Rehabilitation is an extremely valuable tool to MnDOT in the effort to maintain our concrete pavements. The repair standards were developed in the early 1980's and revised yearly since. Great strides in technology were made in the first years, while more recently the changes have been minor as current techniques are now working well.

It is recommended that investigation into soundness of the pavement be performed before a project and specific repairs are decided upon. This investigation should include 'chaining' the pavement, coring and sometimes milling at the joints to determine severity of deterioration, and coring near and far away from the joints to test for freeze-thaw durability.


For more information about the basic types of concrete repairs and general uses and guidelines for each type of repair - Contact the Concrete Engineering Unit.
