LONG TERM SETTLEMENT STUDY AT BRIDGE APPROACHES (NORTH MAXWELL)
This report evaluates the use of lime treatment as a means to reduce differential settlement which frequency occurs between bridges and their approach embankments. Experimental and control sections consisted of a twin bridge site on Interstate 5, north of Maxwell, California. The entire 35 feet of the experimental section was treated with 2% lime, by dry weight of the soil. Due to the minor embankment compression actually measured, there is no evidence of potential benefit from embankment stabilization with lime.
