Mn/DOT engineers are increasingly looking to recycled materials as readily available and cost-effective substitutes for natural aggregate and to fly ash as a material that can be used in the stabilization of sub-base soils. These recycled wastes have the potential to contain unacceptably high levels of some chemicals. This project produced chemical data on wastes, non-surface background soils, and natural aggregates for use in a due diligence screening
tool in current service by Mn/DOT and developed by the Office of Environmental Services (OES). These data will be used by OES for their internal Mn/DOT due diligence determinations using their streamlined hazard evaluation process. A future Local Road Research Board project will transform the OES streamlined hazard evaluation
process into a CD-based product for use by the larger transportation community. Data developed by this current
project will be used to populate the future CD-based product electronic database. This project will maintain consistency with the current in use Office of Environmental Services (OES) streamlined hazard evaluation process for waste recycling in Mn/DOT infrastructure projects.
