Soil Stabilization Applications for Roadways
Utilizing efficient soil stabilization methods during the production of various types of roadways is a common practice for construction companies. However, more construction firms do not have the engineering capabilities or materials on hand to stabilize the soil before construction. That’s when Earthlok steps in, where we use ionic soil stabilization processes to ensure roadway construction goes smoothly.
Importance & Benefits
Like all other applications that benefit from soil stabilization, roadways will enjoy increased efficiency, higher stability, and fewer repairs over the coming years. Without soil stabilization, the soil underneath the pavement would eventually shift and swell. The road above would crack and shift, too.
On a highway, which is a busy expanse, you want a stable surface for vehicles to traverse. Without a stable roadway, more accidents are likely each year. Even the smallest pothole caused by shifting soils underneath can lead to a severe, tragic incident.
A railroad is used to transport tons of goods across the country. The train itself is already hefty and expensive. To protect the investment of both the railway and the products on board, soil stabilization ensures the railroad itself is secure for many years.
A parking lot requires a solid foundation and plenty of pavement to create. If the soil underneath is weak or prone to shifting, the entire parking lot is affected. Our goal is to ensure the soil is compact and secure against shifting due to weather changes or other situations.
A road subgrade is utilized daily for vehicles to travel. Using Earthlok underneath the road will increase efficiency and you will have fewer repairs over the coming years. Without soil stabilization, the soil underneath the road would eventually shift and swell. The road above would crack and shift, too.
