Rural Road Maintenance

A road is not a simple, stand alone item. It is comprised of a number of different components including signage, culverts, guardrails, etc. Knowing all of the pieces makes putting together a long term maintenance plan much easier, plus it allows you to highlight to your superiors exactly where, and how much, specific funding will be allocated. The plan also can be used to highlight specific weaknesses your operators may have with the operation of their equipment, thereby allowing for specific training to be scheduled. The bottom line is a road must be looked at from many different angles in order to ensure its longevity.
