Nantucket Department of Public Works
The Town of Nantucket has 400 miles of road, of which 313 miles are privately owned. Many of these privately owned roads are poorly maintained which creates conditions that can impair emergency vehicle access. The goal of this project was to evaluate the conditions of a sample of the unpaved private roads on Nantucket, and to make recommendations for the repair and maintenance of the roads in order to ensure the safe passage of emergency vehicles. The team accomplished this goal by developing an evaluation protocol and systematically evaluating a sample of the private roads on Nantucket. The team then used the data to develop cost estimates and priorities for fixing the roads.
