Roadside management is a term used to describe a team effort in roadside design, construction, and continuing maintenance. It is a process by which roadside development and maintenance are planned and accomplished in harmony with each other. Long-range goals are identified, and all activities are given priorities according to their importance in relation to the long-range goals or immediate needs or both, and their interactions. The concept of roadside management involves a team effort by engineers, landscape architects, and others who identify long-range goals. The concept applies not only to roadside improvements, but also to those roadsides that have never had an improvement project. The roadside management plan is of great benefit as a communications tool between top management and employees on the job. The plan can also be used as a basis for the supervisor in preparing his next year's program needs. After the development of a roadside management plan, continuing maintenance should fall below previous expenditures levels, and benefits should increase.
