SHOULDER HARDENING TREATMENT IN CONNECTICUT

IN ORDER TO MAKE POSSIBLE GREATER UTILIZATION OF MANY MILES OF OLD NARROW ROADS IN CONNECTICUT WHICH COULD NOT BE REBUILT IMMEDIATELY, EXPERIMENTS IN SHOULDER TREATMENT WERE CONDUCTED. THIS WORK RESULTED IN THE ADOPTION OF STANDARD PRACTICE FOR THE BITUMINOUS TREATMENT OF SHOULDERS CONSISTING ESSENTIALLY IN A PRIMING TREATMENT WITH LIGHT BODIED, SLOW CURING ASPHALTIC OIL FOLLOWED BY A SURFACING COAT OF LIGHT TAR. ON BITUMINOUS ROADS THE FINISHED SHOULDER IS INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM THE MAIN SURFACE AND MAINTENANCE METHODS APPROPRIATE FOR THE WHOLE SURFACE THUS FORMED ARE USED. /AUTHOR/
