Description

Gravel roads are often a vital link for people in a community to their jobs, schools, and other essential services. If these links fall into poor condition, it can present significant safety risks to the community. Beyond safety, local transportation managers want to achieve a certain level of customer satisfaction, as well as using their limited resources, both financial and personnel-related, as effectively as possible. 

Like the rest of an agency’s inventory, gravel roads must be monitored and assessed on a regular basis. This is called a condition assessment. A gravel road is best given an overall rating through observation of individual defects. Documenting poor road conditions helps to assign resources to the roads most in need of work.

One of the most important benefits of rating pavements is that decision makers are given an understanding of the overall road conditions. If a road system is only in fair or poor condition, this type of data display can be highly effective in convincing decision makers that additional improvements are necessary.

This course is intended for a variety of positions within local agencies and tribal governments, with an emphasis on those who are responsible for constructing and maintaining gravel surfaced roads and determining their condition and maintenance requirements. Training includes:

1.	Introduction to Gravel Roads Condition Assessment
2.	Rating Road Surface Conditions
3.	Evaluation Factors
4.	Interactive Case Exercise
