TRAFFIC BOUND ROADS AS FOUNDATIONS FOR MORE SUBSTANTIAL PAVEMENTS

TRAFFIC BOUND BROKEN STONE, GRAVEL, AND SLAG SURFACES HAVE AMPLY DEMONSTRATED THEIR EFFICIENCY AS SUBGRADE TREATMENTS. DURING COMPACTION AND MAINTENANCE, TRAFFIC SOFT SPOTS IN THE SUBGRADE ARE DISCLOSED AND CAN BE ELIMINATED, AND MINOR VARIATIONS IN THE SUPPORTING VALUE OF THE UNDERLYING SOILS ARE AUTOMATICALLY COMPENSATED BY THE GRADUAL DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADEQUATE THICKNESS OF SURFACE MATERIALS WHEN AND WHERE REQUIRED. EXPERIMENTS WERE CONDUCTED IN PENNSYLVANIA ON RESURFACING STREETS OF THIS TYPE. WATER-BOUND AND PENETRATION MACADAM PAVEMENTS WERE LAID ON THE ORIGINAL SURFACES. THE RESURFACING TECHNIQUES, MAINTENANCE PRACTICES, AND OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE RESULTING PAVEMENTS ARE DESCRIBED.
