Title:
METHOD OF UPGRADING GRAVEL AND/OR DIRT ROADS AND A COMPOSITE ROAD RESULTING THEREFROM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2002101149
Kind Code:
B1
Abstract:
A method of paving a gravel and/or dirt roadway (10) is provided. This method includes evaluating the roadway to determine if it is an appropriate candidate for emulsion stabilization, rotating a milling head (20) down a roadway to break up gravel and dirt base layer (14), injecting an asphalt emulsion into the broken up gravel and dirt (24), and mixing the emulsion with the gravel and dirt (24) so as to form an emulsion stabilized layer (18). The emulsion stabilized layer (18) is then spread and compacted to create a paved roadway. Following this, a wearing surface may be applied to the emulsion stabilized layer (18).
