Abstract: A concrete paving block is an accurately dimensioned combination of well-graded aggregates and hydrated portland cement which fits closely together with other paving blocks to form a low-maintenance, high-strength pavement surface. The concrete block pavement resists heavy, concentrated, or abrasive loads and chemical spills involving fuel, hydraulic fluid, and other materials. This report includes discussions of the description, applications, benefits, limitations, costs, and recommended uses for concrete block pavements. Information on a concrete block pavement demonstration site is also provided.
