Abstract : This project was conducted to assist in predicting the effects of freeze-thaw cycling on stabilized hazardous waste material during the 1996-97 freezing season. The Raymark Superfund site in Stratford, Connecticut, is under remediation with the intent of using the area for commercial development. The site was classified as a Superfund site in 1995. The on-site soil contains asbestos, lead, PCBs, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-VOCs, and solvents. These contaminants are by-products of the manufacturing process for heat-resistant automotive parts. The stabilized waste material is being used as the subgrade material in the pavement structure. Field testing was conducted to determine the unconfined compressive strength of the stabilized material before and after the freezing season. Testing was completed using the Clegg impact soil tester and dynamic cone penetrometer. Additionally, thermocouples were installed to estimate the depth of frost penetration that could be expected, and to ensure that the overlying layers in the pavement structure would be adequate to prevent frost penetration into the stabilized layer.
