TRB Winter Maintenance Committee (AHD65)

This committee promotes research that will provide winter maintenance professionals with current and reliable information for effective procurement and implementation of materials, technologies and processes for controlling snow and ice on highways. The committee does this by promoting and facilitating research, technology transfer and education in technical areas that impact winter maintenance operations. Subjects that are important to the committee include: physical properties, geographical distribution and management of winter precipitation (frost, ice, snow, fog) and frozen ground, and their impact on road safety, traffic flow and traffic control; the management of winter maintenance forces through performance measures and standards of service; storage of winter materials and their environmental impacts; mobile and road-based equipment for monitoring and controlling snow and ice accumulation.
