Title Skid Correction Program: User's Manual.
Publication Date Jul 2012
Media Count 25p
Personal Author D. I. Anderson
Abstract This document outlines methods for use by UDOT personnel to address pavements with unacceptable skid numbers. The program involves coordination between Safety, Pavement Management, Region, and Maintenance managers. A process has been recommended using a skid number history, crash history, and other information to make decisions concerning these pavements. This manual provides flow charts, templates and examples to facilitate implementation. The program requires very limited manpower in decision-making and delivery of information to UDOT stakeholders. Implementation of this manual should result in enhanced analysis methods and better communication between UDOT divisions and regions.
