INTRODUCTION

All pavements will wear out over time, even those constructed on firmer subgrades; however, Nilex can help to significantly extend the design life of your pavement structures while lowering construction costs and reducing the amount of aggregate and asphalt used versus conventional construction practices.

With lower maintenance budgets and increasing material costs, road builders and pavement contractors are under escalating pressure to deliver improved performance for less money. Nilex offers a full line of geosynthetic solutions and can provide a complete project evaluation comparing unreinforced applications to geosynthetic reinforced solutions to assist you in making the smart choice.

SOLUTIONS

From yards to haul roads to major roadways, Nilex’s geogrids provide a proven solution to base reinforcement and pavement optimization. Road structures can fail prematurely due to the lateral displacement and weakening of base course aggregate. The structural strength provided by Nilex’s...

Often poor subgrade soils do not possess the strength to support road construction activities and the subsequent intended traffic loads. Nilex’s subgrade separation and stabilization geosynthetic materials maximize load distribution and increase the effective bearing capacity of the subgrade...

Pavement cracking distress on roads, highways, parking lots and airport runways and aprons is a common problem. The intrusion of water through surface cracks and into the base structure accelerates deterioration of the roadway structure. Resurfacing the road can improve the situation but only...

WELLINGTON COUNTY ROAD 29 RECONSTRUCTION

Wellington County Road 29 is approximately 900 metres long and falls between Side Road 10 and Highway 7 in Guelph-Eramosa, Ontario. The road is comprised of two lanes, 9 metres wide, with asphalt paved roads and gravel shoulders. A low lying wetland borders the section of the road to the…
