  • Accelerate construction times, by decreasing the amount of materials needed to be excavated and trucked off site.
  • Existing unsuitable material or fill can be modified in multiple lifts (up to 16” per lift), limiting the amount of select fill needing to be imported onto the worksite

Often, subgrade soil is too wet and lacks necessary strength to support load bearing surfaces. Additives such as lime, fly ash, and cement are added to chemically alter the soil composition, helping to reduce swell, plasticity, and moisture holding capacity while increasing stability and providing a solid working platform for upper pavement layers.
