Dowel Bar Retrofit
A dowel bar retrofit is a method of reinforcing concrete pavement by inserting steel dowel bars in slots cut across the concrete panels. The usual approach is to saw cut and jackhammer out the slots for the dowels. Following dowel placement the slots are typically backfilled with a non-shrink concrete mixture (grout) and the pavement is diamond-ground to restore smoothness.
