Strengthening Road Foundations with Cement Stabilization

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  10/01/2015


The goal of this project was to determine the effects of cement stabilization on pavement design and develop a specification for construction projects in Minnesota. Results show that for some Minnesota soils, the pavement construction savings may greatly outweigh the costs associated with cement stabilization. The use of cement stabilization to strengthen road foundations can reduce construction costs by 50 percent by allowing thinner pavement and foundation layers and eliminating the need to haul aggregates long distances when soils are weak.
