SPR-3811: Moisture-Strength-Constructibility Guidelines for Subgrade Foundation Soils Found in Indiana

The goal of this project is to develop a methodology that will allow INDOT to consider the impact of moisture on soil strength and constructability characteristics during the design phase of projects. An approach to geotechnical projects that accounts for changes in soil properties over time will allow INDOT to address potential problems that may arise in projects and propose mitigating solutions upfront with the objective of reducing soil moisture-related change orders.
