This User's Manual describes the design and construction techniques for installing Membrane Encapsulated Pavement Sections (MEPS). This concept has been developed and implemented by the Corps of Engineers in response to a need by the Army for a rapid and stable road building method in areas where conventional materials are not readily available. Suitable in-place or borrowed soil can be effectively used in the MEPS System in place of conventional aggregate bases or stabilized sub-bases. Construction costs can often be competitive with standard designs and no special equipment or training is required.
