More Road Work

Filed under: Pecan Grove — knewman @ 4:44 pm

Lots of work on the road. We can’t drive on it for another week, give or take a few days, so we are driving between the first two rows of trees. They brought cement yesterday and made a lot of dust as they tilled and mixed. I’m sure that Terry has a better and more detailed report but he can add his two cents later. kch

Lime is applied to expansive clay soils to stabilize it. Rock lime is dumped from a hopper truck on road surface then spread with a dozer. tgh

Lime and the dry soil is tilled with a large rotary mixer to an average depth of 8″. Then water is applied to make the lime ‘pop’ and permeate the soil. After several hours it is well compacted with a roller. tgh
