In August 2004, the concrete industry in cooperation with Illinois Department of Transportation constructed a demonstration project using Ultra-Thin Whitetopping on the District 1 parking lot in Schaumburg, Illinois. The purpose of the project was to finalize specifications and design procedures for use on Illinois' highways.
This movie on the project to the left tells the story of the construction of the parking lot and some of the considerations necessary for construction of this type.
