I have recently been asked to design pavement sections for the parking lots and driveways of several fire stations in the southeast Michigan area. We will be performing soil borings at the sites so I can determine the existing subgrade soil properties. The problem is that no traffic information has been provided so determining ESAL's will be difficult. In my research, I have not run across any projects that design for asphalt pavement. Is asphalt ever used in such cases? I am looking for advice from someone with more experience in this area.
