COCKRELL HILL ROAD

A year 2000 cooperative construction effort of TxDOT and the City of Dallas (TxDOT CSJ 0918-45-387) provided an opportunity to further test the EMC SQUARED System in an area noted for having some of the worst expansive clay soils in the Dallas area. With a construction project already in progress extending Cockrell Hill Road north to tie in to the Interstate 30 Freeway, the contractor submitted a value engineering proposal to speed construction and reduce costs. The original design called for concrete pavement on top of a cement treated base (CTB), a typical structural section for many road and street projects in Dallas. With the concrete pavement already in place for all six lanes from Interstate 30 south to the first intersection, and for the full extension of the northbound lanes, TxDOT and the City of Dallas supported a proposal to eliminate the cement treated base for the southbound lanes yet to be constructed. This portion of the project was constructed without a base course layer. Instead, the concrete pavement was placed directly on subgrade treated to an eight inch depth with an EMC SQUARED System application.

Per the report of the TxDOT Dallas District, the concrete pavement placed on top of a cement treated aggregate flex base (CTB) developed extensive transverse and diagonal cracking as well as heaves and roller coasters and required three full depth repairs soon after construction. The report after 12 years: “The Cockrell Hill Road test section (EMC SQUARED) has experienced some minor pavement repairs but nothing like the rest of the roadway that was stabilized with cement treated flex base.”
