This investigation was conducted to collect pertinent data from the field that, upon analysis, would provide for initial and partial development of deterioration relationships on roads subjected to vehicle traffic. The field tests were conducted in the Stanislaus National Forest near Sonora, California, on a road network that experienced extensive log-hauling traffic during the testing period. The testing included measuring the traffic volume and traffic weights, measuring the condition of the road surface, and conducting various soil tests on the pavement and subgrade. This report contains a detailed discussion of the test procedures, results, and data analysis as well as a general summary of the road construction and maintenance in the testing area. Results of the field tests showed that definitive deterioration relationships could not be developed from the data collected but that a sustained test program could provide for the deterioration relationships desired. /Author/
