The method to replace asphalt and cement is needed to reduce the carbon emission on road. Polymeric material which is light and easy to handle while having complex function with less carbon emission would be highly effective when it replaced soil pavement containing cement. This study is intended to identify the usability of soil pavement containing organic solidification agent only through the field test. Pavement on bike trail still satisfied required bearing capacity coefficient in 3 months. Pavement after passing 1.6 bil units of bike through pavement acceleration test that simulated a long-term serviceability during a short-time still remained unaffected, demonstrating a long-term serviceability of soil pavement.
