Design Procedure for Bituminous-Stabilized Road Surfaces for Low-Volume Roads

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  08/01/2008

Summary:

Researchers found that bituminous stabilization of low-volume gravel roads is more cost-effective than maintaining gravel surfaces or upgrading to hot-mix asphalt, creates fewer dust problems, and increases driver safety. Investigators also developed procedures and software to make design choices easier and more reliable than decisions based on empirical estimates.
