Project Description

The objective of this project is to facilitate rapid highway renewal. This project is intended to identify existing alternative materials and systems for constructing embankments and roadways over unfavorable ground conditions; to develop or compile design guidelines, procedures, and QA/QC test procedures for construction of ground improvements; to develop performance-based construction specifications for selected soil improvement technologies; and to determine which existing and emerging technologies offer promise for treating areas of unfavorable subsurface conditions.
