Due to rising costs of good quality acceptable materials for remove/replace options and traditional subgrade stabilization materials, MDOT is in need to identify potential recycled materials to treat unacceptable subgrade soils. Use of recycled materials may not only provide less costly alternatives for subgrade stabilization, their use may also alleviate landfill disposal challenges. This research study is aimed at identifying short-term and long-term advantages and disadvantages associated with subgrade stabilization using recycled materials such as Cement Kiln Dust (CKD), Lime Kiln Dust (LKD), flyash, concrete fines and mixtures of LKD and FA.
