Ahn, C; Cho, Y; Rafsanjani, H.N; Wiley, H " Effectiveness Study of UNL’s Crack Routing Device (CRD) – Phase II" (2016) Nebraska Department of Roads Research Report


This project evaluated the crack routing device (CRD) for effectiveness in improving current crack-cutting practices and for possible adoption as a standard in the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR). To enact these evaluations of CRD, the research team collaborated with NDOR to conduct surveys and field tests. Given the positive results obtained from this project, improved road-maintenance practices are anticipated when CRD is used, and this research therefore recommends the adoption of CRD in crack-routing work.
