Technology Exchange on Low Volume Road Design, Construction and Maintenance

The primary activities of this pooled fund project are technology exchange, information sharing, and the facilitation of partnering relationships among state agencies and participating members with FHWA, Local Public Agencies and other appropriate agencies and associations. Technology exchange activities in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Low Volume Roads will be advantageous to participating members. Specifically, this pooled fund will: 1. Provide communication and information sharing among member participants: Discuss research, development and technology transfer needs in the areas of design, construction, maintenance, and safety on low volume roads and provide research ideas to the Transportation Research Board (TRB) in the areas of Low Volume Roads. 2. Member workshop at the 12th International Conference on Low Volume Roads: Provide a technology and knowledge exchange forum to enhance the practical knowledge of pooled fund participants concerning low volume road management with a focus on encouraging State DOT and other agency participation in the pooled fund. 3. Pooled Fund Member Meeting on Low Volume Road Issues: Provide a technology and knowledge exchange forum focused on Low Volume Road issues. Topics may include agency collaboration, funding, asset management, shared right of way (ROW)/utilities, safety programs, emergency response, training and certifications, maintenance of traffic, federal oversight, standards and specifications, contracting methods, environmental issues, energy development, maintenance, material sources and quality, and bonding. 4.
