Gravel Road Maintenance Workshop
June 15 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
The proper maintenance of gravel roads in Maine is important for providing residents safe access to their properties and minimizing costly capital repairs to these roads over time, but it is also an important part of protecting our natural resources from degradation. In this training, participants will learn how proper maintenance protects water quality, about gravel road materials, how to evaluate a gravel road for maintenance needs, creating a road maintenance plan, and how to implement gravel road Best Management Practices. The class includes a site-walk of a local gravel road to provide a real-life scenario for discussion of potential improvements and practices upon request.
