LIME, AGGREGATE, CEMENT, EMULSION (L.A.C.E.): AN INNOVATIVE SURFACE TREATMENT
This report describes an innovative method for treating flushed or slick wheel paths. A maintenance team from the Abilene District developed and placed an experimental mix on U.S. 80 and found that the treatment represented a cost-effective, durable, nontoxic procedure for repairing asphalt (or other) surfaces. Because its fundamental ingredients consisted of lime, aggregate, cement, and emulsion, the process was termed 'L.A.C.E' friction course.
