Section 235-4(B & C) pg. 2-21- - 2002 Specifications

-Route construction equipment uniformly over the full width of the embankment

AND PREVENT RUTTING.

-Increase or decrease moisture content of the material before compacting to produce the maximum density

THAT WILL PROVIDE A STABLE GRADE.

Section 235-4(C)3 pg. 2-35 Construction Manual

The embankment must be uniformly compacted and stable.

Instability can occur in some soils even though density requirements are being met.

Stability of all embankment layers is essential prior to placement of the succeeding layer.

Excessive rutting or weaving beneath hauling equipment is an indication of instability. Advise

the Contractor that corrective action must be taken. The Contractor may obtain stability by natural

means or elect to dry the material or use a combination of materials will will assist in producing a stable embankment.
