Minimizing the Environmental and Economic Impact of Unpaved Road Maintenance

Every year the total length of roads in Canada increases with the greatest amount of growth in non-paved roads for resource recovery and rural development. Accompanying this growth in road kilometers is a general decrease in the availability of aggregate resources for new construction and maintenance. In order to maximize the use of available aggregate and financial resources, this desktop study reviews the various methods and equipment available for non-paved road maintenance. This study uses case histories and conventional procedures as part of the review process. The paper's conclusions provide engineers, public works supervisors and anyone responsible for non-paved road maintenance an overall review of the applicability of various maintenance techniques, their pros and cons and the most appropriate occasion for their use. For the covering abstract of this conference see ITRD number E211395.
