Minimum HMA Thickness
Enquiry
The preliminary geotechnical assessment conducted by MTO indicates that the preliminary pavement design would consist of adding 50 mm of Granular A, in-place pulverizing, and paving with 60 mm of Superpave 12.5 Surface Course. Based on the background documents, this highway section has re-occurring frost heaves and has quickly deteriorated below serviceable standards with only a single lift of asphalt. Can the Ministry please confirm the strategy given the high anticipated commercial traffic along this section and provide a minimum HMA thickness for the proponents to bid on.
