USE OF WASTE MATERIAL IN TRANSPORTATION CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

A six-phase feasibility study in the use of Connecticut's solid waste in transportation construction projects has been conducted. This study examines the possible use of various municipal solid wastes in "Sanitary Landfilled Earth Waste Structures" (SLEWS). The study objectives address the extent of waste in Connecticut that could be used in SLEWS construction, delineate the environmental benefits and disadvantages of the SLEWS concept, and define the engineering, construction and specification changes needed to implement SLEWS construction in Connecticut's limited access interstates and primary rights of way. /FHWA/
