DRAINAGE CONSIDERATIONS TO MINIMIZE DISTRESS AT THE PAVEMENT-SHOULDER JOINT

Results of the study described indicate that deterioration of the shoulder in the vicinity of the longitudinal pavement-shoulder joint is considerably more severe when a significant quantity of water is present beneath the pavement and shoulder structure. Factors that affect the severity of the water-associated problems, including the amount and distribution of rainfall, temperature, expansive clay subgrades, and the strength and type of the structural shoulder section are discussed.
