ACPA Guide Specification

This document provides a guideline specification useful for developing project specifications for roller compacted concrete (RCC) as an exposed RCC pavement surface, that may or may not be diamond ground for smoothness and/or texture. RCC as a base/subbase layers is not covered in this specification. The information is also not wholly applicable for non-pavement applications such as backfills, dams or liners. This guideline should not be used as a specification reference in contract documents. An owner, engineer or contractor must consider the available options and apply these guidelines to create specifications for specific local projects.
