Project description

Full depth reclamation (FDR) is widely recognized as a cost-effective rehabilitation method for road reconstruction, and can provide increased structural capacity when additional stabilizing agents are used. While this method has been extensively used and evaluated in the rehabilitation of county and state roads, it has received less attention as a rehabilitation alternative for urban and suburban streets. The objective of the project is to evaluate the advantages and limitations of using FDR for urban and suburban streets and to propose guidelines for implementing FDR as a rehabilitation procedure for street applications. A literature review and survey will be conducted followed by an experimental to identify the most suitable and cost effective technology to be applied to street rehabilitation.
