RCC paving is typically placed with a double-tamping paving machine.

Completed in 2002, the 318-foot-high, 2500-foot-long Olivenhain Dam near San Diego is North America's tallest roller-compacted concrete dam. It was completed in less than half the time needed for a concrete or earth-fill dam. Aggregate was produced onsite and concrete was made at a rate of 1000 cubic yards/hour.

The city of Columbus, Ohio, is using RCC extensively as a base course beneath a smoother asphalt layer. The contractor provides a five-year guarantee on this pavement.

The stepped RCC armor plating on this dam was designed to accommodate a maximum 12 feet of overtopping.
