This document is the second in a series of three manuals produced for the South Dakota Department of Transportation. It is intended for use by county superintendents and other county roadway agency personnel within the State of South Dakota for the efficient selection of maintenance, rehabilitation, and reconstruction alternatives for rural gravel, blotter, asphalt concrete (AC), and portland cement concrete (PCC) roads. The first manual, Rural Road Condition Survey Guide, provides a methodology for determining the condition of rural paved and gravel-surfaced roads. The third manual, Rural Road Management Guide, provides direction for establishing county-wide management systems for rural paved and gravel-surfaced roads.
