AbstractCities are concerned about utility cuts performed on roads and consider them a factor that influences the structural integrity and function of municipal roads. This paper discusses a concept for an innovative road design and construction technique based on the use of precast Portland cement concrete (PCC) panels. Reusable panels are designed to withstand traffic and environmental loading and when lifted, provide utility companies with access to buried facilities. These panels could then be placed back and secured in place using special panel-to-panel tying techniques to maintain load transfer efficiency between adjacent panels.
