AbstractOne of the many complex problems that arise in Ontario highway engineering is the satisfactory construction of roads over muskeg. The whole of Ontario has been glaciated and, as is typical of all glaciated regions, muskeg areas are encountered to a greater or lesser degree depending upon the physiographic formation. In some regions as much as 80 percent of the length of a particular road project is underlain by muskeg. The muskeg is quiet variable with respect both to composition and to depth.
