ROADBED STABILIZATION UTILIZING SUBSURFACE SOILS EXPLORATION

Attempts at stabilizing track structures by the various available means should be preceded by a thorough surface and subsurface investigation. Not only should soils and moisture content be determined in the field, but laboratory tests should show if the foundation can be chemically stabilized. All results should be combined in an engineering report which will give sufficient information for a railroad to determine how it can bring a distressed track section up to standards.
