FORTA-FI® was used in a 7 cm (2.75") base and a 4 cm (1.5") wearng course on a steep, high volume, heavy truck access road. On the edge of a new residential project right next to the asphalt plant asphalt mix is placed on compacted subgrade. The streed is rather steep, leading from the plant exit straight down. The street will be exposed to heavy loads of full tracks transporting asphalt mixes from the plant.
