Researchers Develop User-Friendly Tools for Managing Rural Gravel Roads

Posted: Dec 28, 2021

Researchers at the University of Wyoming are developing tools that local road agencies can use to assess the condition of rural gravel roads. Those user-friendly tools implement smartphones, machine learning, and optimization techniques to help local road managers identify the most appropriate treatment type for each road based on service level, estimated project costs, predicted road conditions, and whether or not to fund a project. The overall goal is to improve the condition of gravel road networks while helping local road managers allocate limited funds more effectively.
