Description: Special Report
Abstract: The Massachusetts Port Authority (MASSPORT) built 53,800 m^3 (13.3 acres) of roller compacted concrete (RCC) pavement at the Paul W. Conley Terminal, Castle Island, South Boston, Massachusetts, during the 1986 and 1987 construction seasons. This was the first time an RCC pavement was built in the multiple freeze-thaw environment of the northern United States. A system of sensors was installed at this project to monitor the main environmental parameters that affect pavements. This report describes the instrumentation system, presents a summary of the recorded data, and discusses cause-and-effect relationships between construction procedures and pavement performance.
