GRAVEL TYPE STABILIZED SURFACES FOR SECONDARY ROADS

LOW COST STABILIZED GRAVEL TYPE SURFACES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED AS ONE APPROACH TO THE PROBLEM OF IMPROVEMENT OF SECONDARY ROADS. THE PROCESS CONSISTS IN BUILDING ON A GRADED ROAD A SURFACE COURSE OF A MIXTURE OF COARSE AGGREGATE, FINE AGGREGATE, SILT AND CLAY, PROPORTIONED FOR MAXIMUM STABILITY ACCORDING TO THE LATEST METHODS, AND TREATED WITH A DELIQUISCENT SALT TO PRESERVE THE STABILITY AND KEEP DOWN THE DUST BY MAINTAINING IT IN A DAMP CONDITION. THE REPORT DISCUSSES SPECIFICATIONS FOR MATERIALS AND MIXTURES AND DESCRIBES THE METHODS USED ON 300 MILES OF ROADS IN ONONDAGA COUNTY, NEW YORK. /AUTHOR/
