REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON FILLERS AND CUSHION COURSES FOR BRICK AND BLOCK PAVEMENTS

THE HOCKING COUNTY, OHIO, BRICK JOINT FILLER TEST PAVEMENT BUILT IN 1935 WAS AGAIN INSPECTED IN SEPTEMBER, 1937 BY THE PROJECT COMMITTEE. IT WAS FOUND THAT SPECIAL PITCH NO. 16 AND PLASTIC SULFUR "TYPE B NO. 4" WERE IN QUESTIONABLE CONDITION. THE TWO BLENDED ASPHALTS, NO. 5 AND NO. 6, ARE APPARENTLY IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. A PAVEMENT EXPERIMENT UNDER WAY ON ROUTE 31, NEAR LOGAN, OHIO WITH BRICK LAID LONGITUDINALLY, IS OF INTEREST. THERE WAS FAR LESS BREAKAGE DURING ROLLING THAN IS CUSTOMARILY EXPERIENCED, THE ROAD IS NOTICEABLY QUIETER THAN IS THE CASE WITH TRANSVERSE BRICKS, AND SINCE THE OPENING OF THE PAVEMENT FAST HEAVY TRUCKS HAVE NOT CAUSED BREAKAGE. A PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECT NOTICED IS THAT WITH THE BRICKS LAID LONGITUDINALLY THE PAVEMENT SEEMS NARROWER THAN A SIMILAR WIDTH HAVING THE BRICKS IN TRANSVERSE POSITION. A REPORT ON THE LONGITUDINAL DESIGN WILL BE FORTH-COMING NEXT YEAR. /AUTHOR/
