Course Summary:

This course is mainly for the benefit of local agency officials, managers, and grader operators who are responsible for designing and maintaining gravel surfaced roads. The information provided in this manual is as nontechnical as possible without sacrificing clear guidelines and instructions on how to perform the operation well.

Learning Objective:

Gravel roads are often considered to provide lower quality service than paved road surfaces. Yet, in many rural regions, the volume of traffic is so low that paving and maintaining a paved road is not economically feasible. Budget constraints are causing some agencies to revert failing paved surfaces to gravel surfaces. Consequently, understanding gravel road design, construction, and maintenance is very important.
