Gravel Roads Management, Volumes 1-3: FHWA-WY-10/03F
This report establishes procedures for managing dirt and gravel roads, with a primary focus on smaller agencies, such as Wyoming counties, that must manage their roads with very limited resources. The report strives, first, to guide and assist smaller agencies by implementing asset and pavement management principles and, second, to encourage and facilitate the development of gravel roads management software.
The overall effort required to implement a gravel roads management system (GRMS) for local agencies must be minimal. Data collection efforts must be limited and the analysis must be simple and transparent. The four basic steps are: assessment; inventory; cost and maintenance history, and condition monitoring.
This report is divided into three volumes.
FHWA-WY-10/03F Volume 1 “Gravel Roads Management.” This section outlines the Background, Problem Statement, Objectives, Report Organization, Analytical Methods, and Summary and Conclusions.
FHWA-WY-10/03F Volume 2 “Gravel Roads Management: Implementation Guide.” This section is designed to assist local road and street departments with implementation or improvement of a gravel roads management system. It is written primarily for road managers tasked with acquiring the necessary information to develop an information systems process.
FHWA-WY-10/03F Volume 3 “Gravel Roads Management: Programming Guide. This section is intended to assist programmers and database managers with programming the information needed to implement a gravel roads management system.
