In 2006, the Ministry of Transportation of Québec used the GFRP bars as reinforcement for the continuous reinforced concrete pavement on Highway 40 East in Montreal. The concept of the CRCP is adopted when using GFRP V-Rod bars instead of steel reinforcement to eliminate any chances of deleterious effects of steel corrosion. This is a world-wide pioneer application of the GFRP reinforcement for continuously-reinforced concrete pavements.
