Road programming refers to the planning of road improvement in advance of actual work, that is, determining the transportation needs of the county and scheduling construction to accomplish the work. Road programming is aimed at efficient road management, serving the public by providing adequate, safe, yet economical road travel. This publication describes the six steps in road programming: 1) inventory, 2) classification, 3) measuring improvement needs, 4) financial planning, 5) priority analysis, and 6) program assembly. These activities are continuous. The implementation of one program leads to evaluation and then creation of another program.
