In order to further narrate the ground temperature difference between both pavements, Table 1 gives the annual average temperature of 2003-2006 years under asphalt pavement in the section K417 + 970 of seasonally frozen ground and cement pavement in the section K418 + 030 of permafrost, as well as the difference between them at the depths of 0.5-2.0 m.
