Field investigations in the Southwest of old military roads and streets as old as 28 years indicate clearly that lime-stabilized bases are durable. The stabilized roads, built from recycled asphalt-surfaced pavements, are still in satisfactory to excellent condition, even though many were underdesigned according to current standards. The Fourth Army Engineers proved that recycling pavements by means of lime stabilization is a feasible, low-cost technique, in both initial and ultimate costs. The study indicates that highway engineers can learn from the results and thereby save taxpayers millions of dollars in the rebuilding of the vast highway network.
