Abstract

Approximately 65% of Iowa's roads are surfaced with aggregates composed of crushed limestone and/or gravel. Rural Iowan's regard these roads as a very important part of their lives. Therefore, the slide-tape presentation, "Maintaining Granular Surfaced Roads" was developed to aid the motor grader operator to better understand the procedures required t o maintain aggregate surfaced roads. A typical cross-section is presented with the proper nomenclature assigned to the roadway features to facilitate the operator's understanding of the basic terms used the program. The following areas are expanded: safety , dragging, cutting, intersections , superelevations, and reporting any discrepancies. The operator's attention to detail can enhance the economy of the state and contribute to the savings of lives on rural highways.
