WOODWASTE AS LIGHTWEIGHT FILL IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

Woodwaste has been used in three highway fills where its light weight was desirable. In one case, the material was below the water table, in the others the material was above it. Anaerobic conditions are considered desirable and this was achieved by encapsulating the woodwaste with polyethylene sheeting when the material was above the water table. The purpose of this paper is to synthesise the available information on the use of woodwaste in highway construction, principally by drawing on experience within the B.C. Department of Highways. /RTAC/
