Taylor Road

FDR base construction was used to upgrade and create a paved shoulder on Taylor Road in Milton, Georgia. S&ME provided pavement design, laboratory FDR mix design, and construction materials testing services for this project. Traditional methods of road reconstruction were forecasted to take several months; however, this approximate 1.3-mile stretch of Taylor Road was reconstructed over a period of about 10 days with the FDR repair method.  

S&ME performed falling weight deflectometer (FWD) testing before and after FDR construction was performed on Taylor Road.  FWD test results indicated a significant improvement in subgrade performance indicating that a long-term service life can be expected from the new FDR-supported road.
