Guidelines for Integrating Safety and Cost-Effectiveness into Resurfacing, Restoration, and Rehabilitation Projects

The objective of this research was to develop guidelines for safe and cost-effective practices for resurfacing, restoration, and/or rehabilitation projects. The primary focus of the guidelines will be on two-lane rural roads and should address both the roadway and roadside. In May 2015, the panel decided to include freeways based on feedback from agencies and requested additional funds.
