Open graded mixes used for paving timber haul roads

Energy considerations and material availability dictate the use of open graded mix as an alternative paving material for timber hauling roads. This investigation was undertaken to evaluate the design, laboratory testing, construction and performance of these pavements. The causes of pavement deterioration and recommended corrective measures are included. A general discussion of benefits and deficiencies of open graded pavements from the standpoints of economy, construction and the mechanistic analysis are presented. Also introduced is a sand- asphalt membrane underlain open graded pavement which out performs the open graded pavement without a membrane (a).
