AN INVESTIGATION OF THE INTERSTATE 80 RUTTING IN ADAIR COUNTY
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the causes for a rutting problem that has occurred on a 13 mile segment of I-80 in Adair County, Iowa. The segment of concern lies between Iowa 25 and the Dallas County line (MP 85.74 tp 99.43). It was concluded that the rutting was the result of a combination of adverse factors, including: high asphalt content; difference between laboratory and field voids; lack of intermediate size crushed particles; and high ambient temperature.
