PAVEMENT DESIGN MANUAL FOR SECONDARY ROADS IN NORTH CAROLINA

A procedure for design of new low volume secondary roads and overlays has been formulated. The procedure relys on data obtained from soil surveys published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture rather than conventional field testing. Otherwise the design method generally follows accepted thickness design techniques currently recognized by the North Carolina Department of Transportation. /FHWA/
