Abstract: This paper describes the systematic process that was used to develop a rehabilitation strategy for the busiest runway at O'Hare International Airport. Any rehabilitation alternative that required a closure of the runway during daytime operations was not considered feasible because of the high user costs associated with closure of the runway. Besides high user costs, several design issues had to be addressed since the current FAA design circular does not provide adequate guidance for the rehabilitation design of a continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP).
