In the spring of 2022, the Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG) conducted a survey of Highway Superintendents in Franklin County and the surrounding region to better understand the issues related to unpaved roads and the costs that are involved in both regular maintenance and emergency repairs. The FRCOG also created an online, interactive map for regional residents to mark specific locations of unpaved road issues, and were provided options to classify the issue (i.e. frequent and/or severe mud, rutting, frequent washouts, wash-boarding, frequent washouts, poor drainage, damaged culverts, other). Data from the survey and interactive map were analyzed and summarized for a better understanding of the issues related to unpaved roads.
