This report explains the various data inputs and outputs associated with the travel demand model (TDM) developed for estimating traffic volumes on low-volume roads in Wyoming. This study incorporated tourism-related data into the TDM and developed methods to estimate traffic volume on low-volume roads...

 

With over 90,000 miles of roadway classified as local roadways (county and township) in the state of North Dakota, local road quality has a large impact on commodity movement, safety, and the quality of life for its residents and visitors. Local road managers have long faced the difficulties of properly...

 

As more Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) becomes available to use in roadways, The Wyoming T2/LTAP Center and two Wyoming Counties investigated the use of RAP in gravel roads. The Wyoming DOT and the Mountain-Plains Consortium funded this study. The investigation explored the use RAP as a means of dust...

 

This report details the results of a project aimed at determining how to legally establish a county road in Wyoming. This report covers the laws on this issue from territory days until the present. It consists of a survey, case law, statutory law, federal law, direction and a final desk reference. The...

 

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 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...

 

This report covers the first year of a two-year study of unpaved roads. Maintenance and reconstruction models of unpaved roads are reviewed. These models are based upon empirical and mechanistic methods, and they have the objective of evaluating deterioration, roughness propagation parameters, scraping...

 

This report reviews the state-of-the-practice in low-volume road pavement design. The factors which dictate pavement design are discussed in terms of construction materials, environment, and traffic. Eight different design procedures are presented and discussed. These include the 1972 and 1986 AASHTO...
