EXPERIMENTAL LIME STABILIZATION PROJECT - NORMAN COUNTY

THIS STUDY COMPARES THE PERFORMANCE OF A CONVENTIONAL FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT (BITUMINOUS SURFACE WITH GRANULAR BASE AND SUBBASE OVER UNTREATED SOIL) WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF PAVEMENT DESIGNS INCORPORATING LIME STABILIZED SOILS. INCLUDED IN THE PROJECT WERE SEVEN EXPERIMENTAL SECTIONS, EACH 1/4 MILE LONG, HAVING VARIOUS THICKNESSES OF BASE AND SUBBASE AND PERCENTAGES OF LIME INCORPORATED INTO THE EMBANKMENT SOIL. THE REPORT DESCRIBES THE SOILS, TESTING, DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROJECT. THE LIME STABILIZED TEST SECTIONS COST MORE AND HAD MORE CRACKING AND LOWER PRESENT SERVICEABILITY INDEXES THAN THE CONTROL SECTIONS. /FHWA/
