North Dakota has more than 102,000 miles of rural roads. Approximately half of these roads are paved and the rest are gravel or dirt. Due to limitations in funding and shifts in traffic patterns, counties and townships are forced to make difficult decisions regarding the maintenance of their roads. Some...

This paper presents a prototype safety improvement program (SIP), which was developed specifically for unpaved roads. The combination of high mileage, low traffic volume, and limited budgets make it difficult for local agencies to adopt traditional safety improvement programs. The SIP for unpaved roads...

This paper summarizes the results of a study on direct assessment of rural user needs. The objective of the study was to assess rural road users and providers perception of rural road needs. Different rural road user groups were identified to obtain a representative sample of perceptions. Users groups...

This study was designed to obtain information from Wyoming tourists to determine the main reasons for visiting, tourist...

The primary objective of this research was to establish statistically valid mathematical models that can explain the variations in accidents as a function of geometric variables. Engineers and planners will be able to use these models to examine the sensitivity of accident rates to any of the independent...

This paper examines the effectiveness of applying chip seal friction courses in reducing accidents on low volume, rural roads. Chip sealing data from District 3 of the Utah Department of Transportation were used to examine accident rates before and after applying chip seal. Although accident rates generally...

The Wyoming loop tour program, as evaluated in this study, involved two components. One component dealt with the location criteria and an evaluation of the existing loop tours which is contained in a companion report, MPC 94-29. Included in this study is a discussion of models used in determining economic...
