DESIGN IS BASED ON CBR TESTS AND CBR WHEEL LOAD CURVES. ITEMS EVALUATED ARE: (1) ANNUAL PRECIPITATION; (2) WATER TABLE; (3) FROST ACTION; (4) EXISTING CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SURFACE DRAINAGE, SUBDRAINAGE, AND SNOW CONDITIONS; AND (5) ESTIMATED TRAFFIC. TESTS ARE MADE ON THE PRELIMINARY SOIL SAMPLES, THEN PRELIMINARY DESIGN, AND ESTIMATES, ARE ENTERED ON THE SOIL PROFILE, WHICH IS USED IN COMPLETING THE PLANS FOR THE PROJECT AND KEPT AS A PERMANENT RECORD OF THE PROJECT. CONSTRUCTION TESTS AND CONSTRUCTION DESIGN ARE ALSO ENTERED ON THE SOIL PROFILE. ANY CHANGES IN CONDITIONS OR DESIGN ARE ENTERED ON THE PROFILE AND APPROPRIATE ADJUSTMENTS ARE MADE. /AUTHOR/
