Polymer additives have shown to improve strength and durability characteristics of granular and subgrade pavement materials. This is in addition to their advantage of lower carbon footprints compared to traditional cementitious additives. This study reports the outcomes of a laboratory investigation to evaluate the use of a polymeric stabilization technique in improving engineering properties of pavement foundation materials. A synthetic polyacrylamide-based additive (PAM) has been used to stabilize three types of soils, commonly used in pavement construction.
