ROADBOND EN 1 was installed on the south bound service road in 1991. ROADBOND EN 1was selected to cope with the challenge of constructing a superior road base with limited resources. The use of ROADBOND EN 1 to stabilize the existing material resulted in a $25,000 to $35,000 savings. ROADBOND EN 1is a proven product with a history spanning 3 decades The Texas Department of Transportation’s experience with ROADBOND EN 1 goes back to the late 1980’s. There are many different construction methods used when repairing or replacing major roadways. Full depth reclamation is an excellent way to conserve resources and when paired with ROADBOND EN 1, can build a better roadway.
ROADBOND EN 1 is a versatile product and can be very useful in saving time and money. It can be used in lieu of lime stabilization and it can improve cement or fly ash treated subgrade. This versatility was particularly useful on a project constructed in 1991.
ROADBOND EN 1 was installed on the south bound service road of east loop 820 in Ft. Worth, Texas. The service road is one half mile long and provides access to the Central Freight and Roadway terminals, which result in heavy semi truck traffic. There are hundreds of trucks per day that travel along the roadway. ROADBOND EN 1 was selected for this project to cope with the challenge of constructing a superior road base with limited resources.
Normally, the old material would be excavated and replaced with four to five inches of hot mix. One and a half inches of asphalt overlay was added as pavement. The total materials cost for this project was less than 40 cents per square yard excluding the surface treatment. This road was constructed over 15 years ago and is still holding up well today. No other product on the market can make that claim. ROADBOND EN 1 is being used with great success in Texas and is available throughout the world.
ROADBOND EN 1 was used to construct a half mile section of road. This replaced hauling out approximately 800 to 1000 cubic yards of old material and bring in 800 to 1000 cubic yards of hot mix. The use of ROADBOND EN 1 to stabilize the existing material resulted in a $25,000 to $35,000 savings and it is still holding up well after two years.”
