What goes into the construction and maintenance of a good road?
There are certain essentials to any good road, whether asphalt or gravel -surfaced, in cities or the country. This workshop will cover each of these essentials, and participants will receive a useful reference manual.
Cities and towns spend a lot of tax dollars on transportation, yet many miles of road are in poor condition. Numerous roads were not constructed for modern traffic loads and volumes. Oftentimes, maintenance has been inadequate, resulting in the deterioration of these path-ways. Many roads need the application of basic principles of road design, construction, and maintenance.
All personnel responsible for the efficient and effective management, rehabilitation, and maintenance of roadways would benefit from attending this workshop.
