Existing road condition
The existing asphalt pavement is badly worn. The road structure does not have the necessary load-bearing capacity, due to the fact that in almost the entire section of the road there are isolated sections with visible damage along the entire roadway. The evenness of the coverage in the section is poor. Numerous network-like cracks, holes, patches, ruts, local subsidence and collapses can be observed on the surface of the pavement.
