Middle Tennessee Hospital
The project includes a new hospital and associated asphaltic concrete paving.
A previously undeveloped site in Middle Tennessee near the bottom of a moderate slopes above the valley floor.
The pavement experienced rutting, alligator cracking, and general failure during the later stages of construction prior to being placed into service.
Site grading during the construction included cuts of about 10 to 20 feet. These cuts extended below the stabilized water table, and seepage from the cut slope entered the pavement subgrade.
A negotiated settlement was reached between the owner and the general contractor which included the installation of a french drain system and reconstruction of large portions of the failed pavement.
