In the summer of 2000, it was decided by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet that a portion of eastbound and westbound I-275 needed repair due to fatigue. The design was 10 inches PCC or 13 inches of asphaltic concrete for Section B, and 9 inches PCC or 12 inches of asphaltic concrete for Section A. Alternate bids were accepted from asphalt and concrete contractors with a required warranty of 10 years or 10,000,000 ESAL’s, which ever came first.
The Kentucky Transportation Center will be monitoring the performance of the pavement for the duration of the warranty and will be submitting an annual report showing any distress.
This report details the construction process and shows just a few of the minor problems that were encountered after the completion of construction.
