classification of hihgway subgrade materials

  • 7 Subgrade Construction

    Even though the subgrade has been previously accepted, the condition of the subgrade at the time paving material is placed is required to be in accordance with Section 10503 and Section 20704 Prior to placing the base course on the subgrade, proofrolling in accordance with Section 20326 is completed Undue distortion of the subgrade is avoided.
