SAND-ASPHALT-SULPHUR (S-A-S). SAND-ASPHALT-SULPHUR FIELD TRIAL HIGHWAY U.S. 77, KENEDY COUNTY, TEXAS

This report describes the procedures used to design and construct trial pavement sections in Kenedy County, Texas. Sulphur, by acting as a structuring agent between aggregates, allowed the use of a poor-quality aggregate in lieu of higher-quality aggregates in these trial sections. This construction technique, which was developed by Shell, Canada, will be evaluated for at least three years at Kenedy County. /Authors/
