Michigan's Inventory-Based Rating System For Unpaved Roads, Peter Torola 2020 Michigan Technological University

Michigan's Inventory-Based Rating System For Unpaved Roads, Peter Torola

Purdue Road School

The current rating systems for unpaved roads lack stability and reliability and, therefore, provide little benefit as project- or network-level metrics. Since many of these systems are derived from paved-road assessment systems, they focus heavily on surface distresses rather than road width, drainage, and other features. This session presents the Inventory-Based Rating System as a stable and implementable method of condition assessment for unpaved roads, without the focus on surface distresses.

Aging Urban Corridors: Big Challenges, Big Rewards, Carl Camacho, Erin Wenger, David Borden 2020 Lochmueller Group, Inc

Aging Urban Corridors: Big Challenges, Big Rewards, Carl Camacho, Erin Wenger, David Borden

Purdue Road School

When revitalizing aging urban streets, an early, in-depth investigation holds the keys to success. Property ownership documents are gener-ations old. Utility records are often nonexis-tent. Century-old underground infrastructure must be located and evaluated. The up-front, fact-finding work is more critical, there’s more of it, and it’s more valuable to the end result. Find out how we set the stage for improving a section of US 40, the “First Highway in America,” that runs through Indianapolis.
