Low Volume Roads Engineering - Best Practices

Low-volume roads, farm-to-market access roads and roads connecting rural communities play a significant role in many countries' economies. They are necessary to serve the public in rural areas, improve the flow of goods and services, and help achieve development, public health, and education goals.

At the same time, rural roads are particularly vulnerable to soil conditions and surface water drainage that can quickly degrade their usability, cause structural failures and result in adverse impacts on the local environment, water quality, and aquatic life.

This webinar will focus on good rural road design and construction practices that are cost effective and sustainable; thus preventing failures, eliminating repair needs, and reducing maintenance.

Targeted Participants:
civil engineers, road managers and resource specialists involved in the design and maintenance of rural roads,

Presenter: Gordon R. Keller, P.E, GE

Gordon Keller has worked extensively with low-volume roads, their design issues, and with road storm damage repairs. Over the past 20 years, he has done a large amount of training and consulting on rural roads design, engineering best practices, and ways to mitigate environmental damage.

He is the author of numerous papers on various aspects of Geotechnical Engineering,Minimum Impact Low-Volume Roads Design and Roads Engineering Best Management Practices. He is an active member of the Transportation Research Board's, Low-Volume Roads Committee.
