The purposes of these modified destructive airfield pavement evaluations were to establish physical property data, determine pavement load carrying capabilities, and identify any existing or potential pavement distresses. Pavement condtions at Potosi extend from very good to failed with the majority of the runway in very good condidtion. The primary reason for the runway condition is the limited amount and type of aircraft that use the airfield. Although runway conditions do not indicate structural overloading, most of the runway is not strong enough to support C-130 operations. Load carrying capabilities of the apron and access taxways are also limited. Recommend the runway and ajoining pavements be structurally enhanced. Pavement conditions at Sucre are very good, or better. Distresses are limited to isolated low severity longitudinal, transverse and map cracks. Joint sealant is, generally, in good condition. The apparent distresses have been well maintained. No significant load limitations exist on the airfield.
