A study to improve the procedures for evaluating and rehabilitating concrete pavements was undertaken in 1985. Field and analytical studies have facilitated a new knowledge and understanding of the performance of rehabilitated concrete pavements. This paper briefly discusses the findings for the following concrete pavement rehabilitation techniques; diamond grinding, load transfer restoration, edge support, full-depth repair, partial-depth repair, bonded concrete overlays and unbonded concrete overlays. The results presented were developed using data collected from 279 jointed plain and jointed reinforced concrete pavement rehabilitation projects in 23 states.
