GUIDEWAY SNOW AND ICE CONTROL AND ROADSIDE MAINTENANCE. This Record contains the following papers: Design Approach for Thermal Removal of Snow and Ice on Automated-Transportation-System Guideways, T. J. Kramer; Wind-Tunnel Analysis of the Effect of Plantings on Snowdrift Control, S. L. Ring; Alternatives to Sodium Chloride for Highway Deicing (Abridgment), S. A. Dunn and R. U. . Maintenance is being performed, but snowpack remains across the roadway. This Snow and Ice Control Guidebook summarizes common snow and ice control tools and serves as an introduction to the field of winter maintenance for operators and managers. Minnesota local agencies perform winter maintenance to keep roads clear for the traveling public. Develop operational and maintenance objectives to meet/refine goals Snow and ice- control outcome based objectives are defined in the following seven categories: 1. Level of Service (LOS) during event 2. Travel reliability during event 3. Recovery from event 4. Safety 5. Level of customer satisfaction 6. Efficiency 7. Environmental Stewardship.

The model includes delay costs incurred by riders when the transportation system is unavailable as a result of snow or ice accumulation on the running surface. This cost is added to the capital, operating, and maintenance costs, and an optimum cost-design point is identified for an electrically heated concrete guideway. compact the snow cover if there is less than the required for safe amount of blue ice clearing equipment. The compacted snow cover causes the ice to thicken under the packed portion of the ice road. Construction Width and Length. The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure standard cleared width on large lakes is forty-five (45) meters. Snow and Ice Control Operational planning for snow and ice control is performed on an annual basis. However, it is decentralized to the various regional areas of the Province and there are no longer-term, Province-wide strategic plans and no well-defined, measurable performance standards. ROAD SALT AND SNOW AND ICE CONTROL on the Management of Road Salt, and a series of Syntheses of Best Practices related to the effective management of road salt use in winter maintenance operations. This primer is intended to help the public under- than that which is required to de-ice the road once the snow/ice pack has formed. It also.

practices, and limitations for snow and ice control on parking lots and sidewalks. This manual is designed to encourage environmentally responsible methods for snow and ice control that will help you reduce salt/sand use and mitigate environmental impacts while meeting the safety and mobility needs of sidewalk and parking lot users. The purpose of this field handbook is to help promote the understanding of the tools, best practices, and limitations for snow and ice control. The handbook will also help you under- stand when to use and when not to use these tools and prac- tices. These resources include snow and ice control strategies and tactics, materials, equipment, and manpower. Attachment 1 provides recommended guidelines for using road and weather information to make snow and ice control treatment decisions. Chapter 8 provides recommended oper- ational guidelines for winter maintenance field personnel. Snow and Ice Control Standards When it comes to snow and ice control, everyone in Nova Scotia wants to know that, regardless of where they live, they are receiving the same level of service as anyone else in our province. To meet the demand for consistent and efficient service, the province has developed winter maintenance performance.
