Construction plans for the summer of 1961 called for the placement of a bituminous surface (Class C-1) on Ky. 753 in Garrard County (see Fig. 1). The project extends from US 27 in Bryantsville to Ky. 152 at Beuna Vista, a distance of approximately 2.8 mites. To prepare the roadbed for this bituminous surfacing, personnel of the Maintenance Division placed additional stone on the roadway and stabilized it with calcium chloride. The Research Division was requested to make recommendations as to application rates of the available stone and calcium chloride and to follow the general performance of the project.
