Gravel Roads Maintenance and Design
Gravel roads are generally the lowest service provided to the traveling public and are usually considered greatly inferior to paved roads. In many cases, gravel roads exist to provide a means of getting agricultural products in and out of farm fields, timber out of forests, or as access to remote areas and rural residents. Many of these roads will remain unpaved due to very low traffic volume and/or lack of funds to adequately improve the subgrade and base before applying pavement layer(s). In some countries, economic constraints mean gravel roads are the only type that can be provided.
This course was developed with a major emphasis on the maintenance of gravel roads, including some basic design elements. It provides clear and helpful information for maintaining gravel roads. Gravel maintenance has traditionally been “more of an art than a science” and very few formal standards exist. This course contains guidelines and best practices to bridge this gap.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Routine maintenance and rehabilitation
- Surface gravel
- Dust control
- Innovations in gravel roads
