- Many communities in the Commonwealth maintain gravel/dirt roads. These roads often serve as an important access way to critical facilities or evacuation routes, so the maintenance and restoration of these roads during or after a flood event are crucial. In addition to roadways, slopes and ditches may also fail in a flood event and become a major hazard to public safety. This Gravel Road Stabilization Poster file size 1MB and Gravel Road Stabilization Presentation file size 35MB provide information of Best Practices for the mitigation of gravel roads and slope stabilization.
