After thinking about the word "capa", I believe that "wet-mix macadam" or wet-mix asphalt" is the best meaning, since graded aggregate would probably not fit "capa". The context wll; help you decide.

Explanation:
En el diccionario Larousse encontré una sola acepción para zahorra = Lastre que se pone en el barco. Por afinidad (quizás algo imaginativa), si es en la construcción de carreters, sugeriría "relleno", y realmente sin especificar, ya que la acepción de zhorra como lastre en buques no se refiere material específico alguno.
El viernes me llega un diccionario muy bueno ES>EN de ingenieria civil y construcciones.Cuando llegue veré si hay otra acepción.
