2011 MnROAD Mainline Concrete Construction: Cells 5, 6 and 63

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  12/11/2012


In September 2011, MnDOT constructed two cells in the MnROAD Mainline in continuation of the study of unbonded overlay (Cell 5) and to facilitate studies on a drainable base (Cell 6) with a longitudinal tined texture. Additionally, roller compacted concrete shoulders were constructed in these cells, to replace the preexisting asphalt shoulders. Finally, repairs were done to a thin concrete overlay of existing asphalt pavement installed in 2004 (Cell 63). This report discusses the construction procedure, instrumentation, and the initial monitoring from these test cells.
