    Dec 13, 2021Advantages of Rigid Pavement. Rigid lasts much, much longer i.e 30+ years compared to 5-10 years of flexible pavements. In the long run it is about half the cost to install and maintain. But the initial costs are somewhat high. Rigid pavement has the ability to bridge small imperfections in the subgrade.

  • Technical Aspects of Asphalt Trail Design

    Sep 01, 2021Thicker base courses should be used for poorer quality sub-grade material. Development of pavement section recommendations assumes a properly prepared sub-grade. The subgrade should be stripped of vegetation, shaped to grade and compacted at the proper moisture content prior to placement of the pavement structure.


    The embankment consists of a series of compacted layers or lifts of suitable material placed on top of each other until the level of the subgrade surface is reached. The subgrade surface is the top of the embankment and the surface upon which the subbase is placed. Any suitable material

  • Choosing the Right Paver Base Material

    Loose soil is unstable and can't bear as much weight as hard, compacted earth. Removing this layer provides a strong foundation for your paver base. For added security, it's crucial to compact your subgrade soil with a vibrating plate compactor. The more compressed your subgrade soil is, the less it will shift and settle over time.

  • 204 Subgrade Compaction and Proof Rolling

    If the subgrade is too wet, the material will displace and rut. If the subgrade is too dry, a hard surface crust may carry the proof roller over an undesirable soft wet underlying material without rutting or deflection, and the soft subgrade may not be detected. Proof rolling may be done either before or after pipe underdrains are installed.

  • What is proof rolling

    A proof roll is an assessment of the subgrade layer prior to installing overlying pavement layers. The subgrade proof roll is a visual assessment to determine if it will enable the construction of the subsequent pavement layers. There are a couple of options; one being a smooth-drum roller which is probably the most common one that we see.
