There is a need for realistic specifications for clay and gravel road surfacing on low-volume roads. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern that will identify specifications for clay content of gravel roads. The presenters will describe a mix design and test method for determining optimal amounts. They will also provide examples of ways low-volume road agencies have obtained better performing gravel roads.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Low Volume Roads. You will be awarded a credit toward a free TRB webinar of your choosing when you sign up for this webinar.
