Maintaining the ever-growing miles of recreation trails within local agency jurisdictions is proving to be difficult due to the increased demands on trail use and funding limitations. The timely maintenance of paved trail surfaces and their surroundings along the corridor is critical to maintaining a good trail system.
The LRRB recently funded an update to this popular training course on corridor management for paved trails. The training focuses primarily on the management and maintenance of the trail pavement but also includes other elements such as vegetation, drainage, signing/striping, lighting, amenities, etc. The course guides the audience through the use of the trail maintenance schedule and checklist and provides information on various pavement issues and treatments. Training materials include a maintenance schedule and checklist for a typical paved trail.
