Description (452.01)

This item of work involves construction of a non-reinforced Portland cement concrete pavement on a prepared surface. The same methods and practices are utilized in the construction of 452 pavement with some exceptions are listed below. The major difference between 451 and 452 pavement is the elimination of the steel reinforcing mesh in the 452 specification.


Construction (452.02)

Non-reinforced Portland cement concrete pavement is constructed in accordance with 451 with the following exceptions:

1.        Reinforcing mesh specified in 451.07 is not required.

2.        Dowels are required in transverse contraction joints in mainline pavement, ramps, acceleration/deceleration lanes, and collector/ distributor lanes but not in concrete shoulders adjacent to the above-listed pavements unless the contraction joints are within 500 feet (150 m) of a pressure relief joint.

3.        The spacing of contraction joints in 452 is 15 feet (4.6 m) unless the 452 pavement is placed as a shoulder tied to 451 or 305 pavement. In this case the joints in the 452 pavement must match the spacing, alignment, sawing, and sealing requirements of the adjacent pavement.

4.        Construction joints in 452 pavement must not be located closer than 6 feet (1.8 m) from another parallel joint.


Method of Measurement (452.03)

Non-reinforced Portland cement concrete pavement is measured by the square yard (square meter) of pavement completed and accepted. All of the provisions of 451 method of measurement apply to 452.


Basis of Payment (452.04)

Payment for 452 pavement is the same as for 451 pavement. Payment is made for accepted quantities of pavement by the square yard (square meter) at the contract bid price. If pavement is found to be deficient in thickness, the Department will pay a reduced price according to 451.17.

There is no additional payment for any pavement constructed and found to have an average thickness in excess of the thickness specified.
