2018 - Canada - Concrete Pavement Life Cycle Environmental Assessment & Economic Analysis: A Manitoba Case Study
This paper presents comparisons of the environmental impacts and life cycle costs of various alternative strategies for a portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement project in Manitoba to demonstrate the opportunity to optimize the cost, pavement performance and environmental impacts. A matrix of 10 different strategies that include alternative PCC mix, pavement design, and maintenance and rehabilitation (M&R) treatments have been used to contrast both the life cycle costs and environmental impacts with MI’s past practice (base case). The presented analysis is expected to assist highway agencies to better understand and weigh not only the economics of alternative strategies, but also the environmental implications of alternative roadway materials, design, construction, and maintenance and rehabilitation practices.
