The Road Repair Handbook provides more than a complete examination of road deterioration, repair, and maintenance. This book includes a rich blend of quality photographs, logic diagrams, spreadsheets, bar schedules, illustrations, imperial and metric conversion tables, and visual aids. This book delivers.From Library Journal:
Most of us leave road repairs to the government, but a surprising number of people live off the beaten path and must maintain a private road or long driveway. Johnston, a land development and construction consultant with over 25 years of road-building experience, shows how to maintain or restore a road properly. This information should prove helpful whether one is doing the work oneself or hiring a contractor and needing to monitor and evaluate that work. In some cases, roads are jointly owned by neighbors or by a homeowners' association, and Johnston offers a number of tips on sharing road-maintenance responsibilities successfully. As with many other projects, proper preparation and preventive maintenance are the keys to success; readers are shown how to grade the surface and then care for the finished product. Admittedly, there is a small market for this type of book, but those public libraries serving rural populations should consider it.
