Optimizing design of low volume roads

Pavement design and asphalt mixtures for low volume roads (LVR) are examined in A Synthesis of Technical Needs of Asphalt Pavements for Local Roads , a report from the National Center for Asphalt Research at Auburn University. The network of LVRs is vast and relatively low-use, and as a result, they are often built with lower-than-conventional design standards, and there are no official design standards for LVRs.
