Form 9





ADA Task Force Position Paper
 
The Americans with Disabilities Act and associated ADA Access Guidelines are the basis for many of the regulations that affect the design of roadways and intersections.  In the last few years revisions to these documents have led to some confusion on the application of the requirements.  The MGPEC ADA Task Force investigation of some of these issues culminated in the preparation of this position paper.

ADA Task Force Position Paper

FHWA Policy Memo - Use of Recycled Materials

The use of recycled materials can help agencies by reducing materials costs and demonstrating their commitment to environmental stewardship - and should be considered. Proper engineering should be performed on the materials to assure equal or better performance than 100% virgin materials. The link below is to FHWA's Office of Pavement Technologies webpage on Recycling, and it includes a link to the FHWA Policy Memo on the use of recycled materials.

Now Available:  Two New Road Dust Reports!

Quality publications brought to you by the Federal Highway Administration's Federal Lands Highway Technology Deployment Program and the Dust Scan Tour Team

You may freely download both reports by clicking on either the images above or the titles below:

UNPAVED ROAD DUST MANAGEMENT, A Successful Practitioner’s Handbook

UNPAVED ROAD CHEMICAL TREATMENTS, State of the Practice Survey

These two reports are only published electronically and hard copies will not be produced.

These timely reports provide unpaved road managers essential information on dirt and gravel

road system preservation including state of the practice, practical examples and best construction

practices, selection tools to match roadway materials with the right chemical treatment and

environmental sensitivity, and how to identify ALL of the costs and benefits.

This two-part complementary set captures program practices of road managers who routinely

deliver quality unpaved roads season after season to satisfied customers, who extend each year

their treated lengths on fixed budgets, and justify the treatment benefit to receive increased

budgets.  You don’t want to miss seeing these!
