EXPERIENCE WITH USING LIME CEMENT DRY MIX PROCESS TO AVOID CONSTRUCTION-RELATED DAMAGE TO EXISTING ROADWAYS AND RAILROADS

The lime cement dry mix process and its applications to the construction of highway or railroad embankments immediately adjacent to existing highways or railroad lines is described. The construction of a 15m high embankment on medium to still Lake Bonneville soils as part of the widening and reconstruction of Interstate 15 in Salt Lake City, UT and the construction of 6m embankments on soft Young Bay Mud for the extension of the BART system to San Francisco, CA International Airport are the examples included here. The embankments for BART are within about 3m of the existing Cal Trains system. Damage to the existing facilities was avoided. Advances in the lime cement dry mix process were developed and are described.
