Task 83, FY 1997, "Guide for Snow and Ice Control" (Weather Solutions Group). There is a great disparity in the technology and quality of winter maintenance as it is performed by the different states and municipalities. There is a need to develop a guide manual for snow and ice control that addresses the different aspects of winter maintenance. The objective of this project was to develop a guide for ice and snow control. A draft outline for this guide manual was developed under NCHRP Project 20-7, Task 71, "Winter Maintenance Program," and finalized based on the results of a national workshop held on April 1-2, 1996. The project is complete; a guide manual that addresses issues pertaining to materials, equipment, operations, personnel, administration and management, and related special considerations has been prepared and forwarded to AASHTO headquarters for distribution to the members of the AASHTO Highway Subcommittee on Maintenance.
