Abstract

The main objectives of this study were to : measure sediment production rates at the road segment scale; evaluate the importance of precipitation, slope, contributing area, traffic, and grading on road sediment production; develop an empirical road erosion predictive model; and compare the measured erosion rates to other published data. Sediment production from 21 road segments was monitored with sediment traps from July 1998 to November 2001. The AA. compare the measured road sediment production rates to published data from St John and elsewhere
