Abstract County and township roads carrying fewer than 400 vehicles per day are classified as low-volume rural roads (LVR) and make up a high percentage of the total rural road mileage in the US. The many miles of these low-volume rural roads present counties and townships with serious concerns, most of which are financial; i.e. how to provide construction and maintenance dollars to improve existing roads or simply maintain them at their current condition; replace or upgrade substandard bridges and install or maintain necessary traffic signs or pavement markings. In other words, the problem is to provide a reasonably safe roadway system at reasonable cost. A desirable objective is to provide a roadway system in which a prudent driver, even a stranger to the area, will be able to safely travel the roads.
