USE OF SOIL STABILIZERS ON HIGHWAY SHOULDERS
A presentation to JCOTS July 19, 2005
BACKGROUND: This study was undertaken at the behest of the General Assembly (2004 Budget Bill). Based on positive preliminary results using soil stabilizers on higher volume gravel roads, they felt soil stabilizers showed substantial promise to reduce the occurrence of shoulder drop-off at a reasonable cost.
PURPOSE: To study the use of soil stabilizers in highway shoulders with the objective of finding a method of substantially reducing the occurrence of pavement/shoulder drop-off at a reasonable cost.
Working – The addition of stabilizers to the shoulder material did affect the strength of the material Null – The addition of stabilizers to the shoulder material did not affect the strength of the material
(as measured by its stiffness and bearing capacity)
