b. Classes of roads. The classes of aggregate surfaced roads vary from A to G. Selection of the proper class depends upon the traffic intensity and is determined from table 1. c. Design index. The design of gravel roads will be based on a design index, which is an index representing all traffic expected to use the road during its life.
· Gravel and dirt roads offer a costeffective alternative to paved roads; here's how these two surfacing methods compare to one another. As unacceptable paved road conditions and limited infrastructure budgets prompt municipalities around the country to go the dirt or gravel route, the benefits of these unpaved alternatives have become clear.
Gravel roads are also less safe than surfaced roads. They are slippery when wet, have less traction when dry and the presence of dust causes poor visibility which creates unsafe riding conditions, particularly at higher traffic volumes. For the same traffic volumes and distance travelled the accident rate on gravel roads is double that of ...
The goal of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness of the portable falling weight deflectometer (PFWD) in evaluating the support capacity of pavements during spring thaw. The performances of ten low volume roads, three of which were gravel surfaced, were evaluated through spring thaw and recovery.

Reid and Dunne (1984) were examining sediment losses from gravel logging roads in the Pacific Northwest and found very low infiltration rates ( mm/hour or inch/hour). "Thus even the gravel roads are almost impermeable during winter storms, and an infiltration capacity of mm/h was selected for use on the gravel surfaced roads

Road maintenance level 4 is defined in the FSH,10, as: Assigned to roads that provide a moderate degree of user comfort and convenience at moderate travel speeds. Most roads are double lane and aggregate surfaced. However, some roads may be single lane. Some roads may be paved and/or dust abated. The most appropriate traffic
gravel surfaced roads. The asphalt was typically high class bitumous with the exception of Mackenzie Beach Road which is considered low class bitumous asphalt. The following roads have a combination of asphalt and gravel: 1. Knott Road length of Asphalt / 50m length of Gravel; 2. Sharp Road length of Asphalt / 580m length of Gravel.
