About the research

Objective
The goal of this project is to develop a comprehensive understanding of and quantitative models for the complex relationships between three key aspects of winter road maintenance: maintenance operations (inputs), road surface conditions (output), and highway safety and mobility (outcome). These relationships are fundamental to the development, justification, and evaluation of road maintenance policies, standards, and methods.The goal of this project is to develop a comprehensive understanding of and quantitative models for the complex relationships between three key aspects of winter road maintenance: maintenance operations (inputs), road surface conditions (output), and highway safety and mobility (outcome).
