US 23, Greenup County, Ashland-South Shore, developed rutting and transverse and longitudinal cracking. The pavement was about 14 years old and had served heavy trucks. Road Rater tests, crack surveys, and various inspections had been made prior to the fall of 1985. Inspection and a report by KTRP led to further evaluation, examination internally by trenching, and additional tests and surveys. This report combines pertinent facts and records. It includes recommendations for overlayment.
