Road damage refers to the state where the functional and structural pavements are no longer effective in providing optimal service to vehicles crossing the road. The design of construction planning and the pavement created are heavily influenced by traffic circumstances and the sorts of vehicles that will cross a road. A road pavement structure's performance will eventually degrade over time. This phenomenon arises due to cyclic loads on the pavement structure generated by the weight and vibration of vehicles passing over it. This study was carried out as a case study of road deterioration in South Sulawesi Province, Indonesia, precisely around the site of the wind power plant's entrance in Sidrap Regency. The CBR value of the soil at the site was obtained using Dynamic Cone Penetrometer Testing following ASTM D6951. At the same time, the CBR value of remolded laboratory samples was employed under ASTM D1883. The soil used as the material for the laboratory CBR sample was excavated from the DCP testing points. According to the findings of this study's investigation, there was severe damage to the road pavement layer, which might have been caused by the dry-wet cycle. The soil shrinks and becomes brittle during the dry season, while in the wet season, the soil swells. The soil should be protected from weather impacts to overcome and avoid additional damage. Provided that the soil is categorized as cohesive, it should be able to maintain the load for a longer service period.
