The paper deals with technologies of a mineral material surface improvement for transport construction. Mineral surface is important because of its hardness, durability and other properties. Besides, it is necessary to protect it from aggressive environment. The purpose of the article is to introduce a few techniques of silica sol use in order to change mineral surface properties. The absorption, irrigation and watering processes were applied as the techniques. Both silica sol and its mixes with solutions contained Ca(II) ions were used as the substances. The experimental methods were carried out during the study. The experiment results have shown that hardness of the mineral material and foam concrete surface was increased up to 60% and the level of the soil strengthening was more than 0,5 MPa. It means that if silica sol and solutions containing Ca(II) ions are used a soil strength is increased more than 40-50%. The results of the study are particularly useful for construction of motorways in order to extend their service life.
